Event description
Laurel Forster and Joanne Hollows look back on the history of feminist magazines, starting with the iconic Time and Tide.

About this event

A joint event with Nottingham Trent University (Print Culture Research Group).

What does it mean to be a feminist magazine? What role have feminist magazines played in the remaking of feminism for successive generations? And what are the origins of the feminist magazines – online and in print – we read today?

To discuss these questions, we welcome Dr Laurel Forster (University of Portsmouth) and Dr Joanne Hollows (writer and researcher) in conversation with Dr Catherine Clay (Nottingham Trent University), editor of Five Leaves publication, Time and Tide: Centenary Issue (2020).

Looking back to this iconic feminist magazine, founded in May 1920 in the wake of the women’s suffrage movement, this event will explore the role of feminist magazines in the making of feminism through the ‘second wave’ to the present, focusing on titles showcased in the recent volume co-edited by Forster and Hollows, Women’s Periodicals and Print Culture in Britain, 1940s-2000s (EUP 2020).

Ranging from 1970s publications including Spare Rib (1972-93) and Womens Voice (1973-81) to more recent magazines including The Vagenda (2012-15) and The Feminist Times (2013-14), this conversation will invite reflection upon the changing face of feminism over the decades and feminist agendas today.

Booking essential as spaces will be limited.
