"Playing the Field: the Politics of History, Gender & Sexuality"
April 23-24, 2004
New York, NY 10027
To celebrate university's 250th anniversary, the graduate students of the history department of Columbia University are pleased to invite proposals for their third annual conference: "Playing the Field: the Politics of History, Gender & Sexuality."
Gender and sexuality emerged as categories of analysis through political activism, and in turn, have revitalized numerous academic fields through the influx of innovative ideas, theories, and methodologies. The conference seeks to bring together academic professionals, public figures, and activists who are engaged in the ongoing discussion about the place of gender and sexuality in academic and public discourse. Our objective is to explore these relationships between activism, academia, and both gender and sexuality.
Proposals may address or exemplify (but are not limited to) the following topics:
connections and disconnects between activism and academia
how gender and sexuality studies are used by non-academics
crossing borders, fields, and departments
links between gender and sexuality
intersections between gender and race, sexuality and race
the future of gender and sexuality studies
new roles for the next generation of gender and sexuality scholars
With Special Presentations By:
Indrani Chatterjee (Rutgers University)
Jacqueline Dowd Hall (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
Lisa Duggan (New York University)
Dorothy Ko (Barnard College)
Please send 250-word proposal with CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2004. Proposals sent before the deadline are greatly encouraged. Graduate students and faculty are both encouraged to apply.
Accepted panelists will be notified by February 16, 2004.
