Global Conference on Women and Gender

to be held at Christopher Newport University, March 19-21, 2020

 

We are pleased to announce that the theme for this year’s conference is: 

Gender, Politics, and Everyday Life: Power, Resistance and Representation

 

This interdisciplinary conference brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations on gender and politics around the world. While formal politics loom large in 2020, we encourage an expansive understanding of political action and expression, inspired by Carol Hanisch’s essay, “The Personal is Political,” which sees all relationships of power as political and connects women’s experiences, self-expression, and values to their lives as political actors and subjects. 

 
Submissions from any academic discipline are welcome, including but not limited to art, history, philosophy, religious studies, sociology, psychology, environmental science, medicine, biomedical ethics, economics, political science, gender studies, communication studies and literature. We also invite professionals in nonacademic settings to submit proposals.

 

Both panel and individual paper proposals are welcome. 

Please submit a 350 to 500-word abstract by October 15th, 2019 at: http://cnu.edu/gcwg

 

Paper presentations will ideally be 15-20 minutes in length and can be considered for our annual publication
