Thinking gender 2014: call for papers

The Call for Papers for UCLA Centre for the Study of Women's (CSW) 24th annual Thinking Gender conference held in February is now available.

See link below for more information on submission guidelines and to read the full Call for Papers.

The conference will take place 8 am to 6 pm on February 7, 2014.

Submissions are invited for individual papers or pre-constituted panels on any topic pertaining to women, gender, and/or sexuality. This year, the organisers especially welcome feminist research on: privacy, diversity, and/or demographics in the age of big data; appetites (pleasure, food, electronics); gender, sexuality, and the new brain sciences (cognitive sciences, psychobiology); the perils of "post-feminism" (feminism backlash, hypo/hypersexualities, redefining feminist activism); gender, sex, and criminality; pleasure and ethics (media and advertising, sexuality); gendered spaces (spatial theories, urban planning, domesticity); and self-staging in public discourse (reality TV, user forums, "selfies"/self-narration and "autographies").
