New Narratives: Stories of Sexuality and Subjectivity is a graduate student conference intended to share stories of human sexuality and the role that these stories might play in advancing interdisciplinary social justice agendas. The objective is to explore the value of our experiences, research, theory and praxis in responding to gender and sexual inequity. Experiential reflections on sexuality and subjectivity as well as theoretical and empirical inquiry into the role of sexuality and experiences of sexuality in understanding the human condition are encouraged.
We invite submissions of high quality stories, papers, and photo essays by graduate students. We welcome presentations in any format that reflect a commitment to conference objectives. Submissions will be accepted until December 21, 2012 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time, and accepted based on a blind review process.
