This year's conference theme is Intersectionality: Understanding Women’s Lives and Resistance in the Past and Present
This interdisciplinary conference uses tools of the arts, humanities, social sciences and other fields to address challenges faced by women and girls around the world, both historically and today. Our 2019 conference theme marks the 30th anniversary of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s use of the term “intersectionality” as well as the 400th anniversary of the first Africans arriving in Hampton, Virginia, and the Jamestown Colony in 1619.
Given the close proximity to Jamestown and Hampton, this year’s conference will especially highlight the ways in which gender intersects race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other identity markers in complex ways. To this end, we welcome proposals that use an intersectional approach to understand these subjects, as well as the interconnectedness of systems of oppression, power and privilege.
Topics may include, but are not limited to the past and/or present role of intersectionality in:
Women’s writing and narratives
Artistic representations of women (e.g., film, literature, music)
Motherhood and family life
Sexuality and gender identity
Submissions from any academic discipline are welcome, including but not limited to:
We also invite professionals in nonacademic settings to submit proposals.
Both panel and individual paper proposals are welcome. Please submit a 350-500 word abstract by October 1, 2018.
Along with your abstract, please include your full name and your academic or professional affiliation and rank (e.g., graduate student, professor, artist). Abstracts that greatly exceed the 500-word count may not be considered.
We will also include a few competitively selected undergraduate panels in the 2019 conference. All submissions will be peer reviewed and those accepted will be notified no later than October 15, 2018.
