Abstract

This paper addresses the question of how to integrate women's issues more fully into the academic curriculum which, because it remains male-dominated, discourages women students from finding their voice and asserting deviant perspectives. It argues strongly for providing feminist spaces within mainstream courses where women students and teachers can explore and celebrate their experiences and viewpoints. It suggests that these spaces can be created by means of student conferences, that is, conferences targeted at student audiences at which staff and students interact in non-hierarchical ways. The main body of this paper is a report on the specific example of two such conferences held in the German Department of the University of Leeds between 1993 and 1994.
