CFP - Feminism in Action

Feminism in Action :The 22nd Annual Conference on Women and Gender
from Dolores' List of CFPs
Call for Sessions

Feminism in Action
The 22nd Annual Conference on Women and Gender
at the University of Connecticut, Storrs
Friday, March 26, 2010
Presented by the University of Connecticut Women's Studies Program

This Conference will focus on the diverse, intersecting and even
contradictory ways that we practice (and at times fail to practice)
feminism through pedagogy, activism, art, scholarship and daily life .
The Conference committee is seeking proposals for papers, workshops,
artwork, performances, films, poster sessions, and other contributions
that raise more questions than provide answers about the struggles,
rewards and complexities of practicing feminism in a white patriarchal
world. The committee is particularly interested in local and community
action workshops and innovative modes of presentation that challenge
conventional conference dynamics such as using multimedia,
constructivist pedagogy, open space technology, engaging audience
participation, and enhancing opportunities for dialogue and feedback
during the conference day.

Sessions are generally 75 minutes and consist of either a complete panel
as submitted or 2 - 3 separate papers. We hope particularly to highlight
the work of UConn students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
and those from other regional institutions.
