Undergraduate and Graduate Conference on Women and Gender
April 19-20, 2013
The Graduate Committee for Research on Women/Gender (Grad-CROW) at The University of Akron, located in northeast Ohio (40 miles south of Cleveland), is pleased to announce an upcoming conference showcasing graduate and undergraduate students’ original research in all fields of women’s and/or gender studies. Our theme, “Feminist Scholarship and Practice in the 21st Century” is purposively a broad and inclusive one, in order to provide opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students working on a variety of topics and within many disciplines to explore women’s lives and/or the various and often contested meanings of gender, past and present.
There is a participation fee of $25 for students and $40 for faculty. There is a possibility for presenters to apply for a scholarship to offset costs. To be eligible to apply for a scholarship, presenters must live at least two hundred miles from The University of Akron.
Proposals should be 300 words or less, and should include the title of your presentation, preferred format of presentation (poster, paper, panel, workshop, etc.), presenter’s name(s), university and department affiliation, email, phone number, and mailing address. Additionally, please include a 100 word abstract to be used in the conference program, along with an agreement to release your email and name in the program. Finally, please be sure to indicate whether you intend to apply for our travel subsidy.
Proposals are due January 31, 2013.
Email proposals to Natalie Hall, President of Grad-CROW, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those selected will be notified via email by February 15, 2013.
