FEMINIST SYMPOSIUM: Boundaries, Bodies, and Dissidence: Negotiating New Spaces of Feminist Knowledge on March 29, 2013

Florida Atlantic University's Women's Studies Graduate Student Association in collaboration with the Center for Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies proudly presents FAU's 15th Annual Women's Studies Graduate Student Association Symposium.

We welcome scholarly work by graduate students from all disciplines. We hope to encourage lively debate about issues of common interest and encourage further work in the fields of gender and women's studies issues.
This symposium is an opportunity for graduate students to present their ongoing work, thesis proposals or research papers.

Graduate students in the Visual and Performing Arts are invited to submit proposals for exhibits or creative performances.

To apply, please submit a one-page abstract which includes:

scholarship or issues of feminist analysis
