CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
3rd Annual New Perspectives Graduate Students’ Symposium
International Conference: Imagining Feminist Futures
Venue: Institute for Gender & Development Studies, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados
Date: November 22, 2011
Deadline for submission of abstract: August 30, 2011
Background & Format
New Perspectives Graduate Students’ Symposium was conceptualised as a means of fostering a culture of critical thinking and sharing of ideas among graduate students while allowing us to network with established scholars in our fields. The conference will take the form of a workshop where short papers (2000 words) are circulated and read before-hand. Each presenter will have 10 minutes followed by a 5-minute response, engagement and critique by a pre-assigned discussant. A collegial group discussion will follow.
The broad theme of this year’s conference is Imagining Feminist Futures. The New Perspectives symposium is committed to blurring boundaries between and across disciplines and as such encourages submissions of empirical research, social and political thought/theory, literary and Cultural Studies as well as reports on activist efforts and projects which work across these fields. Work which utilises feminist theoretical tools and perspectives to explore and define critical questions in the Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences and social justice are encouraged.
Submission of Abstracts & Papers
Proposals for individual presentations should take the form of abstracts of no more than 300 words. Abstracts and bios of 50-75 words, along with contact information and institutional affiliation should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 30, 2011. Work-in-progress/process papers must be submitted by October 1, 2011.
