The Center for Women's & Gender Studies (CWGS) graduate student run conference offers both undergraduate and graduate students at any recognized university the opportunity to share their research highlighting issues in women's, gender, and/or sexuality studies with the students and faculty affiliates of CWGS, The University of Texas at Austin community, and CWGS community partners. We invite individual papers, artistic posters, performance pieces, and panel submissions from participants in any discipline whose research pertains to any topic in women's, gender, and/or sexuality studies.
What are the limits of history and memory? How do we remember/recover that which the archive has erased? What are the implications of embodied history, embodied storytelling, embodied memory? We invite proposals for papers or posters that address these questions (or pose related ones) using the lenses of gender, race, sexuality, ability, performance or other feminist, womanist, queer or anti-racist methodologies.
Registration for UT Students: $15.00
Registration for non-UT Students: $30.00
There is no cost for submitting a proposal.
Keynote Event: We are delighted to have Sharon Bridgforth, award-winning poet, activist and organizer, conducting the keynote address on memory, history, language and (re)membering.
