Intersecting Gender, 6th Annual Sibéal Conference, Queen’s University Belfast 22nd-23rd November 2013
The idea of intersectionality in the field of feminist and gender studies has increasingly been used to facilitate deeper understandings of contemporary gendered identity and experience. Intersectionality in this usage seeks to speak to the coinciding of gender with other biological, social and cultural categories of personal identity and/or oppression, but also to the intersections which can be observed between gender and other apparently “gender-neutral” areas and experiences.
The Sibéal Feminist & Gender Studies Network for Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers will hold their annual conference in Queen’s University Belfast on 22nd and 23rd November. The conference invites engagement with the intersections of gender as they can be detected in a range of locations, spaces and manners. The conference seeks to stimulate a wide and inter-disciplinary approach to the theorisation and everyday practice of gender identity. To that end, paper, panel and performance proposals are sought on, but not limited to:
Practice-based and theoretical perspectives on gender, sexuality and LGBTQI concerns as they relate to:
- The Arts, Literature and Performance
- Law, Politics and Development
- Health and Bodies
- Community and Activism
- Conflict and Nationality
- Economy, Poverty and Welfare
We highly encourage postgraduate students at the MA and PhD level from any area or discipline with an interest in feminist or gender studies to submit proposals.
Abstracts or proposals of no more than 250 words should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
All selected papers should be fifteen minutes long.
Deadline for submission is 16th August 2013.
A number of travel bursaries and a best paper prize will be available to conference presenters, further information on these will be made available after the close of the call for papers. Further information on the conference can be found at www.intersectinggender.wordpress.com
