The 9th annual Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture will take place on February 21, 2020, and we plan to explore how we access sexuality and information about sex. Given the many barriers to access, from geography to ability to class and race, who is allowed to explore or express their sexuality and who is limited? And how do we break down these barriers?

Signum University’s Third Annual Texas Literature & Language Symposium
deadline for submissions:

From Ragnarok to Revelation, from the utopian proposals of Plato’s Republic to the dystopian vision of Huxley’s Brave New World, a prominent concern of human language and literature has always been to describe possible futures. Some of these visions of the future are cataclysmic, looking forward to a time when Heaven—or Mother Earth—will wipe the slate clean; others propose a more optimistic vision of progress. Recent films such as Interstellar or Tomorrowland have taken a middle way, suggesting that although humanity has recently fallen short of its promise, there still remains hope that we will be able to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.
