This paper seeks to begin a conversation about how feminist scholarship, activist scholarship, and methods of activism can be communicated in ways that are palatable and tangible outside of academic journals and conventional forms of scholarship. How can we, as feminist scholars, effectively communicate information, particularly when up against dominant narratives that are perpetuated through various media outlets. Do we need a multi-pronged approach to disseminating our research results and critical feminist scholarship as a whole? Should we engage more explicitly with other forms of communication? How can we influence public discourse through scholarship? While these are not new questions, they remain important stumbling blocks for amplifying our research and how we are able to share information to effect social, political or economic change.
