"Gendering Social Inquiry: Critical Feminist Concerns" First Annual Conference

Arizona State University Gender Studies Graduate Students Association and Graduate Students in Justice and Social Inquiry are pleased to announce a call for papers for their first annual conference, "Gendering Social Inquiry: Critical Feminist Concerns" on February 26, 2010 in Tempe, Arizona. Submission deadline: December 10, 2009.

"Gendering Social Inquiry: Critical Feminist Concerns" First Annual Conference
This conference will explore a broad range of humanities and social science topics related to Women, Gender, Race, Sexualities, and Intersectionalities. Panels and presentation topics may originate from such areas as (but not limited to) visual and narrative cultures, gender and social justice, health, science, environment, and technology, and sexualities. The purpose of this conference is to highlight the work of graduate students working in Women and Gender Studies, Justice Studies or other related areas, provide a space to fine-tune research topics, as well as to network with and recognize the work of other upcoming scholars from a variety of disciplines and universities. We highly encourage graduate student submissions; however, this conference is open to all faculty, researchers, and practitioners.
In addition to panel presentations we are pleased to offer a keynote feminist methods workshop with Adele E. Clarke. This workshop will center on situational analysis as a method for feminist research and knowledge production. Adele E. Clarke, author of the recently released Biomedicalization: Technoscience and Transformations of Health and Illness in the U.S. (Durham, NC: Duke University Press), is Professor of Sociology and Adjunct Professor of History of Health Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco.
