DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: March 7th, 2020

In “speaking to power” we proclaim ourselves as being here, present, and human. Gender theories have always engaged with different types, forms, and sources of power, interrogating their various nuances and articulations through negotiations and resistance, subversion and accommodation. As such, we ask: How do we resist the intersectionalities of power - sexism, racism, classism, colonialism, capitalism, homophobia, transphobia, etc.?
In this conference we celebrate the past, present, and future of the women and gender studies program, cognizant of its significant contribution in social transformation and human development. The conference aims to bring together graduate students, faculty, and researchers who are willing to speak with each other, participating and claiming a stake in our world. Accordingly, we invite you to think about the questions posed above and participate in this conference.
