Feminisms and Internationalism addresses the theme of the history of internationalism in feminist theory and praxis. It engages some of the following topics: the ways in which 'internationalism' has been conceived historically within feminism and women's movements: the nature of and historical shifts within 'imperial' feminisms: changes in the meaning of feminist internationalism both preceding and following the end of most formal empires in the twentieth-century: the challenges to, and the reformulations of, internationalism within feminism by women of color and by women from colonized or formerly colonized countries: the fragmentation of internationalism in response to a growing emphasis on local over global contexts of struggle as well as on a variety of different feminism instead of a singular feminism: and the context for the re-emergence of internationalism within feminisms and women's movements as a result of the new modes of globalization in the late twentieth-century.
