Global Status of Women and Girls
 

This interdisciplinary conference uses tools of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and other fields to address challenges faced by women and girls around the world, both historically and today. Our 2019 conference theme marks the 30th anniversary of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s use of the term “intersectionality” as well as the 400th anniversary of the first Africans arriving in Hampton and the Jamestown Colony in 1619. Given the close proximity to Jamestown and Hampton, this year’s conference will especially highlight the ways in which gender intersects race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other identity markers in complex ways. To this end, we welcome proposals that use an intersectional approach to understand these subjects, as well as the interconnectedness of systems of oppression, power, and privilege.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Social movements
  • Women’s writing and narratives
  • Artistic representations of women (film,literature, music etc.)
  • Motherhood and family life
  • Sexuality and gender identity
  • Reproductive Rights
  • Politics
  • Social media
  • Employment
  • Poverty
  • Education
  • Health
  • Violence
  • Religion
  • Law

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 1st, 2018.
