Dear All,

Please excuse the general email to you all but I thought you might be interested in our conference on Gender, Sex & Power to be held at WISE, University of Hull on Wednesday 21st November 2012. Please could you circulate to interested parties. This is a postgraduate and early stage career interdisciplinary conference. Deadline for abstract submissions is 1st October 2012.  I attach the programme and registration form here but if people want to email me directly I can send these to them again. We are heavily subsidising this event and so places are limited to approximately 60, however we aim to be inclusive, interdisciplinary and it will be a welcoming and supportive environment.  For convenience I also copy the text of the programme into the email below:

Gender, Sex & Power: interdisciplinary dialogues
University of Hull Postgraduate Conference
Wednesday 21st November 2012
9.00am-6.30pm
Wilberforce Institution for the Study of Slavery & Emancipation (WISE)
Oriel Chambers, 27 High Street, Hull, HU1 1NE

The Centre for Gender Studies at the University of Hull hosts a biennial interdisciplinary Gender Research Conference for all taught and research postgraduate scholars with an interest in gender. We also encourage early career or postdoctoral scholars to participate. Our theme for this year is Gender, Sex & Power.

This one-day interdisciplinary conference, funded through the Department of Social Sciences and Gender Studies programme at the University of Hull, draws together postgraduate scholars from across disciplines to explore the intersections of gender, sex and power through their research. The conference provides an important opportunity to discuss your research and network with researchers interested in issues of gender, sex and power from disciplinary and cross-disciplinary standpoints. University of Hull students can be awarded 10 PGTS credits for presenting a paper.

We encourage papers from any relevant field, for example, anthropology, biology, cultural and media studies, criminology, drama, education, history, law, literature, philosophy, policy, politics, psychology, slavery studies and of course within gender studies and the social sciences.

Call for papers
The conference will offer a combination of thematic panels allowing participants to present formal papers of 15 minutes on a theme drawn from their research, and workshops allowing those who do not wish to present a paper to discuss and raise questions about aspects of their research in an informal discursive format.

Indicative Themes
Themes are mutable and papers will be located as deemed most appropriate.
