The Department of English and Communications at South Carolina State University invites twenty-minute papers for the 2021 Intersectional Studies Remote Conference via Zoom on Friday, March 26.


Papers that explore topics related to this year's theme, “History and Resistance,” are particularly welcome.  Current events, such as the attack on the Capitol in January and the Black Lives Matter protests in Summer 2020, highlight the importance of discussing how individual identities intersect to construct different degrees of power and powerlessness.  Paper topics can include but are not limited to how power structures have been embedded in society; how unequal power structures have been resisted; and how the relationship between identity and power is depicted in literature and art.  Papers from a variety of fields of study are welcome. 


Please submit a one-paragraph proposal with your name, your professional affiliation, and email address to Dr. Janice Hawes, jhawes@scsu.edu by March 5.
