Gender Across Borders III invites emerging and established scholars to share the best of their work on women and gender at this two-day conference. Panels in major research areas will be held alongside more focused panels to build an interdisciplinary look at the present and the future of research on women and gender. We welcome papers on more general issues, as well as papers on transformation, border-crossing, the present state and/or future of our research, or the specific topics listed below.
The conference will be headlined by humanities keynote speaker Dr. Layli Phillips, Associate Professor of Women's Studies and African American Studies at Georgia State University and editor of The Womanist Reader (Routledge, 2006); and by our special interdisciplinary session, “Creating a Space for Women in Science.”
