The 2013 conference of the National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) will consider the theme "Negotiating Points of Encounter." The conference will be held from November 7 - 10 in Cincinnati, OH. More information on the conference is available on the NWSA website: http://www.nwsa.org.
As a NWSA Caucus, the Girls & Their Allies Caucus is able to propose panel sessions to this year's conference. If you are engaged in girls studies scholarship, please consider submitting your paper abstracts for this year's conference via our caucus. The Girls & Their Allies Co-Chairs will collect the abstracts, organize them into thematic panel sessions, and then submit completed panel sessions to NWSA for consideration.
To submit a proposal to the Girls & Their Allies Caucus, please provide the following via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, February 4th, 5:00PM EST:
*Individual Paper Title
*Paper Abstract (50 - 100 words)

*Brief statement on your paper's relationship to one of the 2013 conference themes: The Sacred and the Profane; Borders and Margins; Futures of the Feminist Past; Body Politics; and Practices of Effecting Change.
*Any other information you would like to include.
The Caucus Co-Chairs will consider the submitted abstracts and select a series of papers for panel sessions. We will notify submitters about the selected panel sessions by Monday, February 18th 5:00PM EST. We will then submit the compiled panel sessions to NWSA for consideration.
Note: NWSA's blind review process determines the acceptance or rejection of ALL submissions whether or not submissions go through the caucus. NWSA will notify individual submitters of their acceptance or rejection by April 19th. All presenters must be 2013 NWSA members and pre-register for the conference by July 8th.
