(Dis)locating Justice: Emerging Scholarship in Women's & Gender Studies
Featured Keynote: Radhika Balakrishnan, Executive Director of the Center for Women’s Global Leadership and Professor of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University
When: March 29-30, 2012
Where: Center for Women's and Gender Studies, The University of Texas at Austin
The CWGS graduate student-run conference provides graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to share their research highlighting issues in women's, gender, and/or sexuality studies with the students and faculty affiliates of CWGS, The University of Texas at Austin community, and CWGS community partners. We welcome individual paper, artistic, poster, and panel submissions from participants in any discipline whose research pertains to any topic in women’s, gender, and/or sexuality studies.
We especially welcome submissions related to CWGS’s 2011-2012 annual theme, “Gender and Justice.” The concept of justice within various discourses often denotes ideas about legal victories and socio-political issues. While these meanings are warranted and very necessary in our current political climate, how are other disciplines extending the meaning of justice? What does justice mean for the plentitude of emerging scholarship on gender, feminism, and sexuality? How can enactments or performances of justice illuminate new conceptualizations of the term?
Possible topics on this theme include:
**Affective Experiences of Justice
**Disarticulating Legal Justice
**Economies of Justice
**Epistemologies of Justice
**Pedagogies of Justice
**Representations/Performances of Justice
**Rights Discourse and Justice
We welcome additional proposals on other topics within the fields of women's, gender, and sexuality studies. Submission guidelines are available online (http://bit.ly/utwgsconf). All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadlines listed below.
Priority Submission Deadline: December 15, 2011 (registration fee will be waived)
Final Submission Deadline: January 20, 2012
