We're organizing the first COLLOQUIUM on SEXUAL DIVERSITIES in PUERTO
RICO, and I write to invite you to participate and send us YOUR
WONDERFUL PROPOSALS!!! The event is based at the Humanities Department,
University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez.
About one year ago, the UPR system included alternative sexualities in
its non-discriminatory statute, and PR sodomy laws (never quite
enforced) have been repealed. PR is thriving with change and the social
effervescence therein. And so this Colloquium comes at a perfect time
for you to enjoy this too!!!
The call is very open, with topics like alternative sexualities and
solidarity, violence, the media, work, health, race, science,
adolescence, socialization, diasporas, spiritualities, governments and
institutions, history, multiculturalism, globalizations, testimonials,
and family.
Presentations will not necessarily be about or related to Puerto Rico.
The UPR system values as research field and applied work that relates to
Formats included are panels, workshops, round tables, and other
Event Dates: March 28-29, 2006.
Closing date for proposals: February 20, 2006.
Pleases send proposals to <> with copy to me
The conference is bilingual. Proposals can be in English and Spanish.
The attached call, in Spanish, repeats what I say here.
If you cannot participate, please invite your friends who can to do so,
and please do help us disseminate this call as widely as possible.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward
to hearing from you. Thanks!!!
