Call for Proposals
We are now accepting submissions for the University of Washington Women of Color Collective's second annual conference. In an effort to engage scholarship by women of color and their allies, this conference will provide a forum for emergent and senior scholars from all disciplines to share their work. Thematically, the conference will hone in on the subject and process of visibility. Questions to consider: How does visibility function for women of color feminism? How might we think about visibility in conjunction with questions of legitimacy or legibility? What is the relationship of visibility to representation? How might we articulate processes of visibility for racialized and/or gendered individuals? How has community and coalition technologized the creation and marketing of visibility?
Furthermore, conceptually, presenters can also engage with any number of the following:
* Visual culture, representational politics, and race
* Intersectionality theory, legality, and legibility
* Women of color feminism and biopolitics
* Gender, science, and technology
* Envisioning radical feminist futures
* Scientific racism and historical projects of invisibility
* Women of color and reproductive rights
The questions and concepts are mere guides, and in no way should you feel limited by them. We encourage submissions from a variety of disciplines as to enable a larger network of scholars. We hope to garner a range of work that reflects the vibrant scholarship by women of color and their allies at the university and beyond.
Abstracts should be between 250 and 500 words, click here<http://students.washington.edu/wocc/?page_id=62> to submit.
Abstract deadline: March 5, 2010
