  • Gender and the political/electoral process
  • Gender, race and the welfare state
  • Gender and labor
  • Cultural perspectives on defining sexuality
  • Sexuality and children
  • Sexuality and government
  • Non-traditional households and parenting

Papers will be considered on any related theme. 300-500 word abstracts must be submitted to the Symposium Editor no later than November 26, 2008. Abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, PDF or RTF formats. If an abstract is accepted for the Symposium, a full draft paper must be submitted to the Symposium Editor by May 31, 2008.
