As homemakers, academics, politicians, and entrepreneurs, women's experience throughout history has been characterized by a contradictory tension between marginalisation and pioneering leadership. This conference is a history of being on the edge, exploring the ways in which women have been at times marginalized and liminal figures whilst also being vanguards of change and revolution. The 2014 International Women's Day Conference at Queen's University Belfast will explore what it means for a woman to be on the edge in different socio-historical contexts.

"When I cannot see words curling like rings of smoke round me I am in darkness ­I am nothing." -Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Turn your semester's research papers into conference papers. In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies, The University of Dayton invites you to join us March 29, 2014 for a graduate conference devoted to an exploration of the space and place that words create. How does space inform our identities as writers? How do we perceive space, literally and figuratively, in literature? How does race or gender influence the space we are given, or take, in society? Where is our place in the classroom and what can we do with it?
