I am in need of presenters (2-4) on Patricia Hill Collins's concept of
the outsider within. Particularly, this panel proposes to examine
Collins’s concept and its various and potential applications. Collins
discusses the ways in which this outsider within view can enrich
sociological facts and theories; however, her concept can be applied to
many women in many academic and cultural spaces.

If you have a paper or an idea for a paper in which you apply the
outsider within concept in a way other than the way Collins's envisioned,
I would love to hear from you.

Please note: this panel has not been accepted by NWSA, but I have
submitted a proposal for it.
