Bringing together academics, teachers, students, community leaders, activists, and others, this gathering is being co-sponsored by: Beloit College, Edgewood College, St. Norbert College, Madison College (formerly MATC), the UW System Inclusivity Initiative for LGBTQ People, and the Women’s Studies Consortium made up of the 14 Women’s and Gender Studies Programs and Departments of the UW System, the Office of the Women’s Studies Librarian and the Women & Science Program.
The conference organizers seek proposals from across the disciplines addressing research, scholarship, program development, pedagogy, curriculum, and/or community activism in the fields of: Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, LGBTQ Studies, and Sexuality Studies, especially as they intersect with such areas as:
Ethnic Studies, Disability Studies, International Studies, Peace Studies, Sustainability Studies, and Service Learning.
A general focus on intersecting diversity issues and identities, as well as emerging and effective educational and organizational practices/processes, is encouraged. Best practices and case studies suitable for replication (or to be avoided) are especially welcome, especially as they relate to the educational advancement of our students and to the fields of Women’s, Racial/Ethnic, and LGBTQ Studies. We particularly encourage panels that represent approaches to topics which are collaborative, cooperative, diverse, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational.
