Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net
1st Global Conference: Sexuality, Oppression and Human Rights:
Wednesday 30th July – Thursday 31st July 2014
Call for Participation
Inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary perspectives are sought from those engaged in any field relevant to the study of sexual exploitation and sexual violence including media and film studies, performance and creative writing, cultural theory, sociology, criminology, critical race studies, queer studies, psychology and medical. We would particularly encourage the participation of individuals from NGOs, sex workers and legal experts.
Proposals, presentations, performances, screenings, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related to any of the following three themes:
1.Sexual slavery and exploitation
Proposals for panels and alternative forms of presentation are strongly encouraged on the above and related topics.
Our hope is that this inaugural 2-day event will grow into a wider research-orientated set of activities, to include symposia, workshops, courses and schools centred explicitly on analysing Sexuality, Oppression and Human Rights. Such activities seek to include a wide range of diverse perspectives, insights and practices, drawing from academic, business, professional, NGO, voluntary and practitioner contexts.
