RC32 Presidents’ Open Panel in Honour of Cynthia Joseph This panel invites papers that speak to any of the themes that the late Cynthia Joseph’s scholarship and activism addressed to honor her and to ensure that we keep her legacy alive as part of our feminist scholarship and social justice work. We are particularly interested in submissions that stimulate the development of historical and/or comparative feminist theoretical and empirical studies on migration, citizenship, identity, and their intersections, in the era of Globalization. Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to, education, work contexts, state and international policies, ethnicity, race, knowledge production, and social justice. This panel session will celebrate the life and legacy of our late President-Elect Dr. Cynthia Joseph. Cynthia was, until her untimely death on 15th June, 2016, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University in Australia. She was the RC32 President-Elect and was to have assumed office in 2018. Her work was informed by post-colonial theories, comparative education and Asian Studies and addressed issues such as education, work contexts, and knowledge production.
