2006 TRANS-FORMING FEMINISM CONFERENCE CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The 3rd Annual Trans-Forming Feminism Conference is currently in its planning stages. This one-day conference is to be held at the State University of New York at New Paltz (SUNY New Paltz) on April 22, 2006.
We are looking to create a conference that will explore the issues connecting and dividing the Transgender and Feminist communities. We want to address the fears, myths, and misunderstandings that often keep these movements from building coalitions together, as well as the bridges that stand firm in connecting these movements. We want to hear lots of different voices, for as we all know, there is no one voice that speaks for everyone.
We are looking for new, innovative, dynamic, refreshing, and honest proposals for workshops, papers, panels, and performance pieces. We are especially interested in receiving proposals that further explore the gender-queer community, multi and pan sexual communities, the exploitation of race, class, ableism and the queer and feminist communities, third wave feminism and its interactions with other feminist roots, the "not trans enough" phenomenon, trans-phobia within the feminist-lesbian communities and any and all relevant films.
The deadline for submitting proposals is February 18, 2006.
