Description
UCLA CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF WOMEN announces THINKING GENDER 2014 24th Annual Graduate Student Research Conference Call for papers Thinking Gender is a public conference highlighting graduate student research on women, gender and/or sexuality across all disciplines and historical periods, including future ones. We invite submissions for individual papers or pre-constituted panels on any topic pertaining to women, gender, and/or sexuality. This year, we especially welcome feminist research on: privacy, diversity, and/or demographics in the age of big data; appetites (pleasure, food, electronics); gender, sexuality, and the new brain sciences (cognitive sciences, psychobiology); the perils of “post-feminism” (feminism backlash, hypo/hypersexualities, redefining feminist activism); gender, sex, and criminality; pleasure and ethics (media and advertising, sexuality); gendered spaces (spatial theories, urban planning, domesticity); and self-staging in public discourse (reality TV, user forums, “selfies”/self-narration and “autographies”). CSW accepts submissions for both individual papers and pre-constituted panels from all active graduate students. In order to give everyone an opportunity to present, we do not accept submissions from people who presented at Thinking Gender in the previous year. Also no previously published material is eligible. Students proposing individual papers are to submit a cover page (provided on our website), an abstract (250 words), a CV (2 pages maximum), and a brief bibliography (3-5 sources), for consideration. All components are to be delivered in one document and labeled according to the submission guidelines found on the CSW website. For panels, a 250-word description of the panel topic is required, in addition to the materials that must be provided for individual paper submissions. Please visit our website for submission guidelines: http://www.csw.ucla.edu/conferences/thinking-gender/thinking-gender-2014 Send submissions to: thinkinggender@women.ucla.edu Deadline for submissions: Monday, October 14th, 2013 by 12 noon. Conference is to be held on Friday, February 7, 2014, at the UCLA Faculty Center. Event is free and open to the public, but please be aware that there will be a $35 registration fee for presenters, which will cover the cost of conference materials and lunch at the Faculty Center.
