Call for Proposals
The Age and Ageism Caucus of the National Women's Studies Association is seeking submissions for the 2020 annual NWSA conference. The conference will take place Nov. 12-15 in Minnepolis. This year’s theme is The Poetics, Politics, and Praxis of Transnational Feminisms.
This year the call for papers includes no subthemes, but all proposed panels should touch upon the central theme of transnationalism. We seek papers that look at aging as it takes place in a globalized world, with heightened interconnectivity between people, a global economy and new inequalities that come along with it.
