The Symposium is only a few days away, and we are very excited about the many presentations taking place throughout the day. Below is the symposium program. The information is the same as that posted several days ago but has just been formatted differently.
Below is the detailed symposium schedule (including abstracts of presentations), the general symposium schedule, as well as detailed schedules arranged by discipline or a common theme. You will also find information on the CE workshop, and the keynote address.

We are very pleased with the proposals we have received, both in number and in quality, and are excited to hear from the diverse voices within our community on April 13th.
The next step in the process is spreading the word about the symposium. If you are a presenter, or invested in the success of the symposium in any way, look at our “Spread the word” page for details regard promoting the symposium.
The proposal deadline is today, March 1st, and we are happy to accept submissions until midnight tonight. If you would like an extension, please email the planning committee and we will consider your request.
So far we are very pleased with the submissions, both in number and in quality, and are excited to hear from the diverse voices within our community on April 13th.
We are excited to invite you to join a multi-disciplinary dialogue on gender and sexuality. Although formal research projects and papers are welcome, the symposium is designed to encourage meaningful dialogue amongst the community; thus, we encourage you to submit semester projects and papers that will add to the conversation.
Various critical approaches – scientific, mathematic, literary, historical, political, rhetorical, ethical, philosophical, artistic, etc – can be utilized to examine gender and sexuality. By creating an environment where professionals and students from the various disciplines can dialogue, we learn from each other and increasing our knowledge and competencies. Then the Symposium on Gender and Sexuality is a great place to start, where students, staff and faculty are coming together to present their research and experience on the intersections of these topics.
We are really excited about this opportunity to learn from the members of our community through the variety of activities taking place. Feel free to stop in at any time throughout the day. We look forward to seeing you on April 13th!
