Thinking Gender 2016 invites submissions for individual papers, pre-constituted panels, posters, and—for the first time!—films and interactive media on topics that focus on the awareness of self, representation, and the navigation and negotiation of social and cultural space.

We also intend to address international and transnational encounters, and colonization and decolonization practices. We invite scholarship related to the conference theme of “Spatial Awareness, Representation & Gendered Spaces.” CSW accepts submissions from graduate students who are registered at US or international colleges or universities. Undergraduate students are eligible for poster submissions. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov. 20.
