The University of Tampa will host the next Florida Consortium of Women’s and Gender Studies Conference, October 2-4, 2009 in Tampa, Florida.
The breadth of this interdisciplinary conference allows for research in a wide historical area, including well-known historical landmarks for women to explore their legacies for the present and the future; contemporary interaction of women’s movements with local, regional, and global communities, organizations, and institutions; and an exploration of how underlying ideological concerns today will impact women’s roles tomorrow.
Individual papers, panels and roundtables or workshops are welcome. We encourage a broad range of theoretical and methodological avenues of approach and wide range of topics. We also welcome innovative presentational formats.
Individual conference papers should be no more than 20 minutes in duration. Panels, roundtables and workshops will last 90 minutes.
Abstracts should be at least 250 to 500 words double-spaced, include the presenter’s contact information and brief vita, and must be received by June 1, 2009. Abstracts may be sent electronically, by fax, or by regular mail to:
