(Re)Membering the Body, 21st Annual Conference on Emerging Scholarship in Women's and Gender Studies

Posted: February 25, 2014

The 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.

**CWGS’s 2013-2014 conference theme is “(Re)Membering the Body.”**
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? 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 will be presented.

RSVP by Wednesday, March 19 at noon
