Women's and Gender Studies Call for Proposals

The Women’s and Gender Studies Program invites proposals for its biennial conference on March 22. Entitled Futuristic Feminisms: Visionary Perspectives Across the Disciplines, this one-day conference will present scholarly and creative work by feminist activists, writers, scientists, visual and performing artists and scholars, that examines future directions of feminism and Women’s and Gender Studies through diverse lenses.

All proposals will be reviewed by Oakton's Women’s and Gender Studies Steering Committee and will be selected based on appropriateness of topic, quality of proposal and contribution to Women’s and Gender Studies scholarship and creative endeavors. Special attention will be paid to proposals that feature intersectional and multidisciplinary approaches and/or inclusion of presenters from faculty, artist and student groups.

The deadline for proposals is February 1, 2013. Notification of proposal status will be sent via e-mail no later than February 15, 2013.
