Conference on Women and Gender Call for Proposals

Toni Morrison
Sonia Sotomayor

Deadline: December 17, 2017

The Women and Gender Studies Program is pleased to announce that the annual Seton Hall University Conference on Women and Gender will be held on Friday, March 16, 2018, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The organizers are looking to offer a collection of exciting sessions that reflects the dynamic, productive diversity of perspectives and approaches characterizing the current discussions about women and about gender. We warmly invite presenters exploring any aspect of women and gender from all fields—including the humanities, diplomacy, social sciences, mathematics, and experimental sciences—and all professions, including but not limited to business, law, health care, education, and non-profit administration.

Consistent with the principles and methodology of Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, and related fields, papers should be academic in nature, based on foundational concepts including the constructedness of gender, and joining critically in conversation with reliable, scholarly or edited sources. Papers should also be accessible to a general audience of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. We strongly welcome the participation of students, faculty, and staff, with the proviso that graduate and undergraduate panels must have a faculty discussant. We will accept both panels and individual papers.

The deadline for abstracts is December 17, 2017. Please submit your abstract using the form on the right.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the conference organizers, Dr. Vanessa May and Dr. Karen Gevirtz.
