Feminism is not a singular concept - and never has been: there is not just one feminism, but a multitude of divergent theoretical and practical approaches. Even today, what is meant by feminism is contested and disputed. This is evident in the negotiation of which genealogies enter into feminist struggles against the backdrop of different political and sociocultural backgrounds.
How can new concepts of earlier texts and practices of feminist movements be discovered, or older concepts be made (differently) productive? How do feminist theories relate to different forms of structural inequality, which alliances, crossings, and contradictions exist?
