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.

PROPOSALS MUST INCLUDE:

FOR EACH WORKSHOP:
-A one page description of presentation, including how it relates to the conference theme, and the topics and activities the presentation will include, as well as any relevant experience of presenter(s).
-Specific format of workshop/presentation (lecture with question and answer, discussion group, brief presentation with discussion/activity, etc…).
-A 100 word or less abstract of presentation for use in the conference program.

FOR EACH PRESENTER:
-Preferred name
-Mailing address
-Phone
-E-mail address
-A 50 word or less biography for use in the conference program.
-Funds requested for travel reimbursement
-Funds requested for lodging reimbursement
-Funds requested for materiel's reimbursement
-Funds requested for honorarium
-Any special needs/considerations
-Social security number and legal name (only for presenters requesting funds- required by State University of New York from all individuals applying to receive funding, non-US residents must include comparative identification code. To give SS# over phone please contact Kris at 603-566-3489)

I'm a queer insomniac, so I suppose I fit in quite well with this community. Yaye for that. Name's Lauren, nice to meet you & all that jazz.

So it's three thirty in the morning right now, and I haven't slept for two days.

What's up with you lot? Writing and smoke breaks only last me for so long. Got any books to reccomend? Or music? Right now, I'm very much enjoying the Perishers, Scissor Sisters and Trespassers William. Don't think they are particularly queer-aimed (except for Scissor Sisters). I do like Tegan and Sara (they seem to be popular here, eh?).

hiya bitches. there obviously aren't enough queer insomniacs around. jeez, make some noise people!

I'm not being an insomniac, I'm actually just up writing a boorrrrring book review. Or trying to. I hate criticizing other ppl's work.

So here's a question: What would you guys consider to be good music if you're queer and awake at some ungodly hour in the morning? (besides tegan and sara)

oh, dressingbad, that reminds me - if you watch l-word, tegan and sara are supposed to guest star & play sometime during season 3.


here's another question: what's the dumbest thing you've ever done at a bar? I made out with a girl who's 15 (i totally thought she was 18 - didn't find out how old she was 'til after).

feel free to reply to this if you're wandering by and it's like, 3 months from now or something, btw.

cheers, queers!
