-We had the experience but missed the meaning.-
T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets (1941)

Experience is defined as a - direct participation or observation of
events - which results in a production of knowledge. This experience
can be encountered by an individual, community or nation.1

In this regard, postgraduate students Vasuki Shanmuganathan and Claire
Harnett-Mann from Interdisciplinary Gender Studies at the University of
Birmingham are organising, 25 - 26 May 2006 in the Learning Centre
UG05, a conference for postgraduate students of humanities and social
sciences on issues relating to the study of gender. Titled -Genderful
Experiences,- in reference to the interacting dynamics of identity and
experience, we invite submissions of theoretical and practical
applications that consider our positions as multiply producible
subjects. We are especially interested in proposals whose scope is
transnational and/or transgendered and those that consider gender in
relation to the importance of interdisciplinary study.

Please send a 150-200 word proposal to by 15 February 2006. Individual
papers or panel groups are welcome. Final papers must be 20 minutes
long or 8-10 pages, double-spaced. Should you have any questions or
comments, please feel free to e-mail us. We look forward to hearing
your paper at the conference!
