A conference sponsored by The Barnard College Women’s Center

Saturday, April 23, 1977

Our fourth annual academic conference will identify and discuss some of the major contradictions, implicit and explicit, between the conceptions of reality developed by feminist scholars and those accepted in tradi- tional scholarship. In particular, what are the social processes—the day—to—day practices—by which scholarly knowledge is defined, created, and disseminated? What are the implications of these practices for feminist

scholarship?
