We interpret the theme broadly and will consider proposals focused on topics from self-defined community action, to UN Policy development, to institutional or classroom transformation, and beyond.
Participants are encouraged to draw upon the range of perspectives on gender and social justice to examine the present and future of well-being and empowerment for women, girls and their families, in Wisconsin and the world.
Plan to join 100+ presenters: students, faculty, activists, artists, and community members, as we consider how gendered knowledge is created and experienced at the axes of identities, especially with regard to our bodies and the earth’s body.
The Organizing Committee invites proposals for individual papers, posters, pre-constituted panels, pre-constituted roundtables, and creative works that address one or more of the conference themes.
The due date for submissions is 11:59 PM (US Eastern Daylight Time) on Friday November 10, 2017.
Please submit your proposal here: http://www.womensstudiesconsortium.org/
We welcome submissions from scholars, activists, artists, and students, including those at the undergraduate level.
Open Call for Participation – Individuals submitting proposals are asked to provide a short abstract and affiliation and contact information for each of the participants. Co-authored papers are acceptable. Sessions are either 60 minutes or 75 minutes long.
Please direct any questions about the conference and the submission process to:
