“Gender in Times of Crisis: A Multidisciplinary Conversation” is a Special Issue dedicated to feminist methodologies that highlight the productive outcomes of crisis, contradiction, and fracture. Taken together, the essays model a type of "disaggregate thinking" (Angela Davis, 2011), whereby things that appear to be separate are thought together and where natural, common-sense connections are made uncomfortably less so. The essays deal with the struggles of social change in a wide array of areas that range from higher education to welfare activists, from queer gardens of memory to new models of citizenship, from gender violence to the school-to-prison pipeline, from community activism to the brutal effects of neoliberal economic policies on dignity and quality of life. These articles offer an imaginary for change that is multidimensional and based on a tense dialogue between the different axes that mold the strands of experiences that structure our lives, knowledge that crosses and questions facile identity lines, that unites and disaggregates in a contestatory and transformative fashion.
