CFP: Art of Gender in Everyday Life - Idaho

A Multidisciplinary Conference


Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID
March 10 & 11, 2011

ABSTRACT POSTMARK DEADLINE: Friday, November 19, 2010

Gender is not a given. Its meaning and significance are constantly in flux.
This conference will explore the various ways in which gender is crafted, celebrated, endured, deciphered, expressed or, in short, the art of how it is lived on a daily basis.

ALL submissions related to the art of living gendered lives will be considered.
* Given our keynote speaker, Andi Zeisler, Co-founder of Bitch Magazine, the Committee is especially interested in submissions that address the following:

GENDER AND THE ARTS (including: the presentation of gendered performances, films, etc., as well as academic papers)

* The committee is also interested in receiving submissions from graduate and advanced undergraduate students. The committee will hold a student paper competition and award prizes for the graduate and undergraduate submissions they select.

PRESENTATION FORMATS: Presentations may take several different formats, including: papers (resulting from group work or individuals); slide presentations; films; readings; and performances. Presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration.

Complete panels can also be submitted. Panel submissions will only be considered, however, if the following information is included: cover sheets and abstracts for a complete group of four participants; and the specific question to be addressed.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Submissions will be accepted BY POST ONLY.
