The Conference Committee invites abstracts from university faculty and staff as well as from graduate and advanced undergraduate students. ALL submissions related to the art of living gendered lives will be considered. This year, given our speakers, we are especially interested in submissions that address gender and identity, gender and psychology, gender in the arts (including the presentation of gendered performances, films, etc., as well as academic papers) and in popular culture.
During our annual conference, we welcome gender scholars from across the country to Pocatello. The conference is an opportunity for them to present current research on gender issues. Participants from past years have consistently commented on the friendly atmosphere at The Art of Gender in Everyday Life conferences, and it is our principal mission to continue our tradition of creating a collegial, supportive and nurturing environment for the discussion of gender issues from across the disciplines.
The Art of Gender in Everyday Life VII is a special opportunity to network with colleagues in the relaxed setting of Pocatello, Idaho, nestled between the picturesque Portneuf Range and Bannock Range of the Rocky Mountains.
