UCLA CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF WOMEN announces:
THINKING GENDER 2012
22nd Annual Graduate Student Research Conference

Call for papers

Thinking Gender is a public conference highlighting graduate student
research on women, gender and/or sexuality across all disciplines and
historical periods. We invite submissions for individual papers or
pre-constituted panels on any topic pertaining to women, gender, and/or
sexuality. This year, we especially welcome feminist research on: gender
roles in relation to marriage, parenting, or being single; critiques of
biosciences and biotechnology as they pertain to fertility, sanitation,
and/or medical experimentation at a local, national or global level;
mobility as duress or success–for example, in relation to migration,
immigration, or upward or downward economic mobility; life stage issues,
such as aging and girls’ studies; and feminist storytelling or research in
modes such as oral histories, graphic novels, theater, comedy or other
inventive expressions.

CSW accepts submissions for both individual papers and pre-constituted
panels from all active graduate students. In order to give everyone an
opportunity to present, we do not accept submissions from people who
presented at Thinking Gender in the previous year. Also no previously
published material is eligible.

Students proposing individual papers are to submit an abstract (250
words), a CV (2 pages maximum), and a brief bibliography (3-5 sources),
for consideration. For panels, a 250-word description of the panel topic
is required, in addition to the materials that must be provided for
individual paper submissions. For a more detailed description of
submission guidelines, please visit:
