"Gender, Place and Space : An Interdisciplinary Conference"
The University of Notre Dame,
South Bend, Indiana (Etats-Unis)
March 25-27, 2010
This conference aims to bring together scholars from across the disciplines to investigate the many intersections and problematics of gender, place, and space. Space, place and gender have been key topics in areas such as architecture, law, history, sociology, urban studies, area studies, literary criticism, cultural studies, film studies, and gender. Scholars are invited to address the issue of gender, place and space through a variety of disciplinary approaches, investigating a wide range of real and imagined places and spaces. Scholars might consider masculine spaces, feminine spaces, queer spaces, or virtual spaces ; spaces such as the home, the office, the railroad, the apartment, the museum, the store, the church ; the urban, the rural, the suburban ; spaces as represented in various texts and discourses ; uses of space ; theories of space, and more.
Proposals should consist of a 200 word abstract of the paper, a list of three keywords, and a brief biographical statement listing your title, the name of your college or university, and your areas of research and writing.
Please indicate technology needs, such as PowerPoint or DVD.
