We invite paper abstracts and complete panel, workshop, and roundtable proposals on all aspects of gender and embodiment. Submissions can also address feminism in relation to the themes of (im)mobility, trafficking, and movement. Gayle Rubin’s landmark essay, “The Traffic in Women: Notes on the ‘Political Economy’ of Sex,” provides a touchstone for SEWSA 2015 conference theme.
We invite you to submit individual proposals of 250 words in a Word document for this general call for papers and the deadline general conference submissions has been extended to January 9th. (The LGBTQ, People of Color, and Student caucus panels have already selected their presenters.) Submissions should detail requests for specific audiovisual equipment, if needed. We also ask that a proposal for a complete panel, roundtable, or workshop include a short description of the central topic, supplemented by brief abstracts of individual speakers’ contributions. Please e-mail abstracts to: SEWSA2015@fau.edu
