WGST Annual Conference Calls for Abstracts

The Women and Genders Studies Conference is calling for papers to submit and is set to take place Jan. 19-21.

The theme for the conference is “Feminisms & Intersections,” taking an interdisciplinary look at the ways in which various, multiple “isms,” including but not limited to racism, ageism, classism, ableism and heterosexism, intersect with feminism or feminist thought and theory.

The conference will have a keynote performance by Angelina Llongueras of her one-woman show, “PHOOLAN IS ALL OF US: In Memory of Phoolan Devi.” The show honors Phoolan Devi, an Indian woman of a low caste who was a bandit, a member of Parliament and a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was assassinated outside her residence in New Delhi.

The deadline to submit an abstract is Dec. 5. They may be sent to tsuwgstsubmissions@gmail.com with “WGST Conference Abstract” in the subject line. For more information, contact Alan Vaughn at alv5563@truman.edu.
