11th Annual UVM Student Conference on Race, Gender and Sexuality

Call for Submissions

Deadline for Submissions: January 26, 2015
Conference date: Friday, March 13, 2015

The Gender Sexuality and Women's Studies Program (GSWS) offers a unique and wide-ranging way of studying and engaging with the world. We study concepts such as sex, gender, and sexuality; identities such as female, male, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and queer; the intersections of these identities with race, class, (dis)ability and other kinds of differences among people; and academic subjects including women's history, the sociology of the family, race and gender in urban space, queer theory, sex and politics, and biological approaches to sex and gender. GSWS is both an academic discipline and a meeting place for students and faculty in every discipline who want to explore these critically important issues. The Program is scholarly, and it is fully engaged with the world in which we live.
