An interdisciplinary event hosted by the Scottish Word and Image Group (SWIG) and the Women, Culture and Society Programme (WCS)

The overall aim of this conference will be to generate a nuanced and critical dialogue for assessing constructions of gender in text and image via a multi-disciplinary approach relating literary and visual media, as well as theory and practice. In addition, an exhibition will accompany the conference. It is our intention that selected papers will be published in a themed collection.

mothering
and colonialism, mothering and ecofeminism, queer mothering, mothering

UPDATE: Queer Grad Students Reading Culture (10/30/07; collection)

Jes Battis

Due to an increased workload, as well as other logistics and an
international move by the editor, "Graduating Gender: Queer Grad Students
Reading Culture" will remain open to new submissions until Oct 20, 2007. I
am still passionately committed to producing this collection, but it simply
needs more time. The volume, as I have said in other posts, will examine
the unique work of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and queer (or
genderQueer) grad students, looking especially at how this work is
produced--either in cooperation or under duress--within a largely
heterosexual and heteronormative academy.

Submissions might include:
