CFP: Gender, sexuality, and urban spaces

A graduate student conference. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, March 11-12, 2011.

"Urban spaces both produce and are produced by gender. The Graduate Consortium in Women's Studies conference, Gender, Sexuality and Urban Spaces, seeks to explore the reciprocity of these complex relationships. We are interested in how life (or living) in urban spaces mark as well as produce gendered and sexed bodies and how gender, class and race relations, performances and sexualities, in turn, make their marks on the urban spaces. By urban spaces, we mean the lived practices and representations through which a variety of spaces are constituted within and beyond the scope of the city. We invite submissions that examine the construction of gender and sexuality (in conjunction with race, class, & mobility) and urban spaces across a range of historical, cultural, national, fictional, and conceptual contexts."
Submission deadline for proposals: December 2, 2010.
