GENDER MATTERS: GENDERED BORDERS
Friday, April 13, 2012
University Park, Illinois
Gender Matters is an academic conference highlighting research on gender, women, and sexuality across all disciplines and historical periods. Conference planners seek to bring together students, activists, and researchers to discuss the ongoing role of gender in structuring society. We invite submissions for individual papers or pre-constituted panels.
This year’s theme, Gendered Borders, focuses our attention on borders in all contexts – virtual, geographical, physical – or any other delineating marker that serves to exclude, encircle, or expand the concept of borders as gendered sites and sites of gender.
Richard T. Rodríguez, Associate Professor of English, Latina/Latino Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, and Criticism and Interpretive Theory at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, will deliver this year’s keynote address.
For individual papers, please submit a title page with complete author contact information and an abstract of 250 words. For panels, please submit a 500 word rationale and description of the panel, type of panel (paper panel, roundtable discussion, performance), contact information for all panelists, and 250 word abstracts for each presenter
