I want to host a small-scale Online Islamic Feminism Conference (OIF) on Metis next month. I was thinking that interested writers from you write individual essays on Islam, women and Islamic feminism and on a set date we publish them all on Metis with a special page linking to all the essays. It could lead to some great discussion and we could later even try and publish the revised essays as a volume so each of us can have a publication to our credit.
What do you think? I know that some of you are already working on presentations and discussions and you could just write that up for Metis. Do you think a month is enough to prepare a 1500-2000 word essay to be published here? I was thinking of hosting the conference in March so that I have enough time to publicise the event.
Thoughts? And please raise your hand too if you want to publish in the conference. Thank you so much in advance for all your help and support.
