Call for Proposals: Thinking Gender 2020 Conference

The UCLA Center for the Study of Women (CSW) invites submissions of paper, poster, and roundtable proposals for our 30th Annual Thinking Gender Student Research Conference. This year’s conference theme, Sexual Violence as Structural Violence: Feminist Visions of Transformative Justice, will focus on sexual violence as a function of state and capitalist violence, emphasizing feminist, queer, trans, abolitionist, and intersectional interventions. We are specifically interested in presentations that center anti-imperialist, anti-racist, Indigenous, intersectional, anti-carceral/abolitionist frameworks for understanding sexual violence. We invite proposals for papers, roundtable presentations, and posters related to studies of sexual violence in the context of empire, settler colonialism, incarceration, immigration detention and deportation, and labor exploitation, among other forms of state and capitalist violence. We also welcome research on the criminalization of gender and sexual non-conformity, social institutions and carceral control, and intersectional abolitionist responses—historical and contemporary—to punishment.  

Deadline for All Proposal Submissions: Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 11:59 PM PDT  

Submit your proposal online at CSW.UCLA.EDU/TG20_CFP
