CFP: Gender and Sexuality: Identity Borderlands

Conference: Milwaukee Gender Conference
Place: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Date: February 20-21, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: unknown
Description: »The Alliance of History Graduate Students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is pleased to announce their annual inter-disciplinary conference, with this year’s theme being gender and sexuality; this year’s theme highlights gender and sexuality. “Identity borderlands” is a phrase meant to bring to mind intersectionality—the borderlands where gender and sexuality cross paths with race, class, culture, and a host of other identities. This conference hopes to examine, critique, and advance the historical meanings of gender, sexuality, and identity within an intersectional context/framework that recognizes intersectionality. We are particularly interested in receiving papers from a spectrum of disciplines and a broad range of genres that help illuminate these themes.«
