Two PhD candidates (English, German) at University of Oregon are proposing a panel for the annual NWSA (National Women's Studies Association) conference in Baltimore November 16-19th, 2017. In line with this year’s topic on “Revisiting Intersectionality” we are proposing a panel on Animal Studies and intersectionality. We are currently looking for a third panelist and one moderator who work in this field, especially on Animal Studies and Black Feminism, Queer Theory, or Disability Studies to participate on this panel. Please email us ( and if you are interested in participating (the deadline for abstracts is 2/22).
