THE UCLA CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF WOMEN
THE TWENTIETH ANNUAL GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH
2010 Thinking Gender
Friday, February 5, 2010
UCLA FACULTY CENTER
Thinking Gender is a public conference highlighting graduate student research on
women, sexuality and gender across all disciplines and historical periods. We invite
submissions for individual papers or pre‐constituted panels.
This year we are particularly interested in research on labor, social justice, public policy,
the global and globalization, race and ethnicity in the Americas, and the "new" economy
(austerity) and its effects on women and people of color. Additionally, because this year
is the Center for the Study of Women's 25th anniversary, we are especially interested in
topics relating to feminism's past and present, such as the state of feminism, changing
notions of feminism, post‐feminism or third‐wave feminism, feminist community/ies
both off and online, and feminist icons and leaders.
For individual papers, please submit a Thinking Gender cover sheet, 250‐word abstract, a CV
(2 pages max, no resumes, please), and a brief bibliography (1 page max). For panels,
please submit a 250‐word description of the panel topic in addition to the materials
required for the individual paper submissions. Please download cover sheet form and
reference submission guidelines at http://www.csw.ucla.edu/thinkinggender.html, and
note that only complete applications adhering to the stated guidelines will be accepted.
