Call for Papers
This conference will bring together scholars working in the broad area of gender and difference, across a wide range of social and cultural texts and practices. It will feature research by faculty and graduate students working in critical and cultural theory, literature, film studies, sociology and other relevant fields. We will discuss cutting edge research that addresses the various ways in which differences of all kinds — ranging from ethnic, racialised and religious differences to location, time period, class and sexual orientation — complexify the analysis of gender and gender politics. Proposals are welcome from all relevant academic disciplines and theoretical frameworks, covering any historical period.
A selection of papers from the conference will be published in the online journals gender forum and Assuming Gender.
Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 500 word proposal along
with a short CV to the conference organizers at:
firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 January 2010.
