Papers are invited for this special panel at â€˜Return to Genderâ€™, the forthcoming graduate conference at the University of Glasgow on 25th November, 2006.

Are traditional notions of masculinity and femininity becoming irrelevant given the present diversity of possible alternative identities? How might we envisage gender utopias/dystopias in the later 21st century? How has technological/scientific research opposed or contributed to the existence of gendered power structures? Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
