CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, LOS ANGELES
CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF GENDERS AND SEXUALITIES

8TH Annual Gender, Sexuality, and Power Student Research Conference May 17, 2012

Keynote Speaker: Doug Mao, Professor of English, The Johns Hopkins University

The Center for the Study of Genders and Sexualities (CSGS) at California State University, Los Angeles invites paper proposals for our annual student research conference to be held on May 17, 2012. This is a one-day, interdisciplinary conference inclusive of graduate and undergraduate work in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences that addresses issues of gender and sexuality. We welcome papers from students of literature, history, political science, ethnic studies, anthropology, philosophy, sociology, women’s and gender studies, queer theory, criminology, psychology, law, business, biology, art history, communications, and the performing arts. We are particularly interested in work that takes an interdisciplinary approach and in work that considers gender and sexuality’s intersections with matters of race, ethnicity, disability, nation, class, and religion.

Students whose papers are accepted will later be invited to submit full-length versions of their work to be considered for publication in CSGS’s newly proposed online journal.

Instructions for applying:

Send abstracts of 250 words or less (and please include a title) to Sofia Varona, Center Coordinator, at csgs@calstatela.edu no later than 5PM on Monday, April 2nd. Please include at the top of your abstract your name, your contact information (email address), your program of study, and your institutional affiliation. When you email your proposal, please place in the subject line your first and last name followed by “Paper Proposal”

Example: Chris Smith Paper Proposal

Notifications of acceptance will be sent ASAP. Submitters are encouraged to be explicit about how their work engages issues of gender and sexuality and about how the work constitutes an original intervention in their field(s).
