The Seattle University Wismer Center for Gender & Diversity Studies =
welcomes submissions to an upcoming interdisciplinary conference - =
INTERSECTIONS OF RACE AND GENDER: (RE) IMAGINING THE FAMILY. The =
conference will be held at Seattle University from April 12-14, 2007.

=20

Continuing with the theme of our 2005 conference -- (Re) Examining Race =
and Gender -- this upcoming conference will provide an opportunity for =
scholars and activists from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds =
to engage in discussions concerning race, gender, and their =
intersections. Narrower in scope than the 2005 conference, (Re) =
Imagining the Family will focus on the roles of race, ethnicity, class, =
gender, and/or sexual orientation in the context of the family.=20

=20

While we welcome submissions from family scholars that address any of =
these identities, we are particularly interested in work that examines =
intersections of two or more of these identities. We hope to attract a =
variety of perspectives -- historical as well as contemporary, domestic =
as well as global, theoretical as well as empirical.=20

=20

Possible topics include cross-cultural and international adoption; =
health care disparities by race, gender, and class; welfare reform; =
same-sex marriage; family law; care of the young, the old, and the =
disabled; motherhood; fatherhood; social mobility; reproductive =
technology and rights; immigration; the concept of love as a commodity; =
queer theory; ethics, spirituality, and religion; third world and global =
feminism; and representations of the family in art, literature, and the =
media.
