>Return to Gender: Sex and Context across the Disciplines
>
>The University of Glasgow will be hosting an 
>AHRC sponsored postgraduate conference on 
>NOVEMBER 25TH 2006 to stage a series of debates 
>on the uses of gender in the work of 
>postgraduates in a variety of disciplines.  The 
>conference will address a series of questions on 
>the relevance of feminine, masculine and queer 
>identities in an academic environment dominated 
>by uses of post.  Are studies of sex 
>becoming anachronistic in the face of gender, 
>and have they lost their political potential 
>through a cultural relativism that uses culture 
>over sex as a primary axis of difference?   We 
>invite papers to discuss any and all 
>applications of gender in their work across 
>academic disciplines.  Possible topics and 
>questions include:
>
>* Media constructions of gender
>* Androgyny
>* Performativity and Drag
>* Gender and technology
>* Sex and power
>* Abnormal gender psychology
>* Paternity and masculinity
>* Queer kinship
>* Nation/Image/Gender
>* Marriage and Partnership
>* Geography and gender
>* Has feminism been subsumed into gender studies? 
>*What is the role of Queer studies in the Arts: is it a minority concern?
>*Theory and practice: what material contributions can gender theory make?
>* The hijab: politically empowering or forced submission?
>* Is work on masculinity sidelined in the teaching of gender studies?
>* Are we 'post' gender?
>
>We invite abstracts of 200-300 words for 20 
>minute papers to be submitted electronically by 
>SEPTEMBER 1ST 2006 to 
>[log in to unmask], with 
>institutional affiliation and contact details. 
>Participants at the conference will be invited 
>to submit their papers to eSharp, Glasgow's 
>award-winning postgraduate journal.  They will 
>then be considered for publication in a Spring 
>2007 issue on gender.  Please get in touch if 
>you have any questions regarding the conference.
