This three-day international conference (April 17th-19th, 2013)brings together scholars, activists, artists, and students from a broad range of disciplines and fields to discuss the complex ways in which race and sexuality shape one another. The conference seeks to encourage conversations between feminists who work on issues of race and those who work on issues of sexuality.
To contemplate these concerns, we invite submissions in French or English for papers or visual presentations (performances, videos or other artworks) that address—but are not limited to—the following broad themes related to race and/or sexualities:
• Embodiment, health, biopolitics
• Political economies
• States, citizenship and trans/nationalisms
• Colonialisms and imperialisms
Please include the following information in your submission:
(a) Title of the paper/artistic presentation (maximum 15 words)
(b) Abstract (maximum 250 words) and, in the case of an artistic presentation, an accompanying excerpt of artwork (maximum 1-minute video or 5 digital images). Please note that due to space restrictions, only one submission per applicant will be accepted.
(c) The name, title, institutional affiliation (university, institution or organization) and email
(d) A mini-bio of the first author of the paper or artistic presentation (maximum 50 words).
Please submit abstracts via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
