Bursting Gender's Bubble, An Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Conference
April 4-5, 2014
Let’s break open the bubble…
The University of Notre Dame, along with co-sponsors Saint Mary’s College and Indiana University-South Bend, will host an undergraduate conference for Gender Studies on April 4 & 5, 2014 on Notre Dame’s campus in South Bend, Indiana. Submissions focusing on any area of original research-based scholarship in gender studies (including, but not limited to, work in literary criticism, sociology, theology, anthropology, economics, psychology, biology) have been accepted from colleges and universities in the Midwest. We welcome scholarship that deals with the significance of gender—and the cognate subjects of sex, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, religion, and nationality—in all areas of human life, especially in the social formation of human identities, practices, and institutions.
This conference will consist of a series of individual panels of 3-4 papers. A panel comprised of faculty from Notre Dame's Gender Studies Program, Saint Mary’s Gender and Women’s Studies Program, and Indiana’s Women’s and Gender Studies department have selected papers from among the proposals received and these will constitute the panels.
Lunch (both days) and dinner (Friday) will be provided. There will be no registration fee for participants selected to present work. It is expected that all participants will attend the entire conference.
Questions can be submitted to: Prof. Abigail Palko (email@example.com)
