Call For Papers

GENDER IN ENGLISH STUDIES SYMPOSIUM 2012: 'The fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality'

The aim of this symposium is to contribute to the academically informed discussion on gender within Anglophone and Celtic linguistics and literature as well as culture studies. To explore gender issues from a variety of perspectives, we plan to organize plenary lectures and themed sessions on the topics of the fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality. The point of departure for the conference is the assumption that gender-related processes take place in context (spatio-temporal, social, cultural and political etc.) and need to be investigated as such.
Areas for possible contributions include but are not restricted to: gender studies, masculinity studies, queer studies, discourse studies, performativity theory, feminisms, media studies, sociolinguistics, education studies, LGBTQIA themes, sexuality studies and childhood studies. We would also like to invite theoreticians of gender and sexualities, as well as activists who deal with gender and LGBTQIA-related issues in Anglophone and Celtic contexts. The language of the conference is English. We plan to publish a monograph, which will include selected papers from the symposium.

Our goals are to:

- offer a forum for faculty and PhD students to present papers and work-in-progress in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere
- allow participants to present different methods and styles of gender research and hence explore the creative, interdisciplinary potential of language and gender studies
- work up an interdisciplinary research agenda – a line of gender inquiry which will further the fight against gender-related discrimination and stigmatization
- offer a platform for BA and MA students interested in the topic to share their academic interests in Young Scholars’ Workshop

Keynote speakers:

prof. Judith Jack Halberstam (University of Southern California)
dr Bethan Benwell (University of Stirling)


Please submit your paper proposal online via our website.

Conference fee: 500 PLN/€120 (PhD students: 350 PLN/€85)
