Second Annual Capital District Feminist Studies Conference CFP

 

Who: This event is open to all in the greater Capital District interested in feminist and gender studies (broadly conceived)

 

What: Second Annual Capital District Feminist Studies Conference. Abstract submissions for faculty paper presentations and student posters are due Friday, December 6, 2013.

 

Where: Siena College

 

When: Friday, February 21, 2014 from 1pm-6pm 

 

Why: To create an opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration among those in the greater Capital District interested in feminist and gender studies

 

Capitalizing on a robust and accomplished concentration of scholars, teachers, and students in and around the Capital District who are interested in feminist and gender studies (broadly conceived), this consortium seeks to create an opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration.  The second annual consortium conference will be Friday, February 21 from 1pm-6pm at Siena College. It is the aspiration of the organizers of the consortium that a wide variety of disciplines contemplated by feminist and gender studies scholars will be represented.

 

To that end, faculty members seeking to make a formal presentation of scholarship are invited to submit an abstract no longer than 500 words.  Chosen participants will have a total of 20 minutes to present their work and for Q&A. Students are invited to submit an abstract of approximately 300 words for a student poster session (students will create posters that will be on display and there will be time set aside for people to check out the posters and discuss them with students).

 

If interested, please submit your abstract no later than Friday, December 6, 2013 to Laurie Naranch at lnaranch@siena.edu. Decisions will be made by Friday, December 20, 2013.
