feminism is for everyone – bell hooks

Our Vision and Mission


The Center for Feminist Futures aims to be a leader in fostering feminist scholarship and learning for UCSB and beyond. Our work is grounded in commitments to work that is intergenerational, intersectional, transnational, transdisciplinary, and transformative scholarship. To accelerate progress toward a more just future for all, the Center is committed to advancing efforts that translate and disseminate scholarship to broader publics, formulate new collaborative visions of feminist futures, and promote these visions in local, national, and global contexts. We aim to build bridges between academic disciplines, generations, geographies, and histories to learn from the past while demonstrating how indispensable diverse feminisms are for establishing equality, rights, and gender justice in the twenty-first century.


The goals of the Center of Feminist Futures are threefold:
  • To promote collaborative and interdisciplinary research
  • To support community-engaged research, public scholarship, and intergenerational dialogue
  • To expand opportunities for experiential and praxis-based learning
