CFP: Thinking Gender 2013 at UCLA

The UCLA Center for the Study of Women invites submissions for the 23rd Annual Graduate Student Research Conference "Thinking Gender 2013". Thinking Gender is a public conference highlighting graduate student research on women, gender and/or sexuality across all disciplines and historical periods, including future ones. The conference is free and will be held February 1st, 2013 at the UCLA Faculty Center. Submission deadline: Noon on October 16th, 2012.

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: new directions in feminist social movements (Occupy, Tea Party, Arab Spring, and other uprisings); new directions in feminist theory (the new materialisms, animal studies, disability, affect studies); debt (housing, medical, educational, generational); the archive (transformations in the historical, recycling, repurposing, reviving); social media (marketing, aggression, sexuality); intimacy politics (reproduction, kinship, caretaking labor, healthcare, marriage); and feminist representations now (media, politics and the arts).
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 a cover page (provided on our website), an abstract (250 words), a CV (2 pages maximum), and a brief bibliography (3-5 sources), for consideration. All components are to be delivered in one document and labeled according to the submission guidelines found on the CSW website. 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.
