How does the media categorize or illustrate gender? What does it mean to be “feminine”? What does it mean to be “masculine”? How does gender intersect with race and ethnicity? Historically, how have gender guidelines evolved? What roles have both men and women played in literature? Is feminism still relevant today? Undergraduate students of all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts on any topics related to gender studies.

Please send your 250-word paper abstract to Patrick Hamilton, Assistant Professor of English, phamilto@misericordia.edu by February 28, 2011.
Registration: Free to MU students/faculty; $10 non-MU students; $15 non-MU faculty
