The second Feminist Pedagogy Conference seeks participants for a day-long conference entitled “What’s Feminist about Feminist Pedagogy?”
The conference will be held on October 12, 2007 at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City. The Feminist Pedagogy Conference is a venue for conversation between scholars and activists across the disciplines around the present state of feminist pedagogy and work on gender, both within and beyond the academy. Building on previous work, this is a forum to share pedagogical methods and ideas for teaching in women and gender studies and/or feminist approaches to learning and classroom strategies in various disciplines. Our aim is to address issues of gender and sexuality, in conjunction with race and class, both inside and outside of the academy.
We invite participants to lead or take part in panels, workshops and round-table discussions devoted to an analysis of materials and locations from which we might not always look for feminist theory and pedagogy, places outside or in the margins of the academy. We seek work that, for example, confronts problems, exclusions, alliances, successes, the challenges of interdisciplinary work, marginalization, competition, inclusions, and generational differences and similarities in feminist pedagogy.
Paper abstracts and round-table proposals should be no longer than 300 words each and can be sent with a one-page resume via email (pasted into the text of the message) to conference organizers Jen Gieseking, Jennifer Gaboury, and Antonia Levy at email@example.com. We welcome the submission of paper abstracts and round-table proposals from the same individual or group and dual submissions should be entered simultaneously.
The deadline for submissions is April 30th, 2007. CUNY Feminist Pedagogy Conference Jen Gieseking, Jennifer Gaboury, and Antonia Levy CUNY Graduate Center, New York City firstname.lastname@example.org.
