16th Annual Sarah Lawrence Women’s History Conference
Saturday March 1, 2014

Since the defeat of Proposition 8 banning gay marriage in California, the
LGBT movement has claimed several significant victories in the struggle for
civil rights in the United States. Despite these advances, gender non-
conformists at home and around the world face daunting challenges in their
fight for fair treatment and equality. In some places, they face the threat
of violence daily. The ’Kill the Gays’ law in Uganda, the draconian laws and
brutality against sexual minorities in Russia and the Emo killings in Iraq
are only a few of the challenges LGBTQ people face globally. The 16th Annual
Sarah Lawrence Women’s History Conference seeks to explore all aspects of
gender identity and gender expression.

Specific panel topics may include, but are not limited to :

. Law and gender identity
. Transgendered children
. Evolution of gendered language
. Health and gender identity
. Genderqueer and non-binary identities
. Transgender activism
. The history of sexuality and gender

Proposals should be no more than two pages maximum. Please include a short
description of each presentation and a one- page c.v. for each presenter.
Proposals for panels are especially welcome, but we will also consider
individual papers. E-mail submissions are preferred.

Deadline : Friday, December 9, 2013
Send proposals to :
Tara James, Associate Director Women’s History Program
Sarah Lawrence College
1 Mead Way
Bronxville, New York 10708
