The Women Studies Program at California State University Fullerton invites abstracts/proposals or papers, panels, workshops or poster presentation from scholars and students in all disciplines and interdisciplinary areas for a one-day conference on all themes and topics focusing on the study of women and gender.  This conference will create a lively forum for the exchange of ideas, including but not limited to: the meaning of difference, queer identities, media and technology, politics and social discourse, performance, literature and visual art.  We welcome submissions from presenters in all fields.

A 150-word abstract/proposal should be submitted by Friday, February 11 to Donna Nicol at dnicol@fullerton.edu. Proposals must include the participant’s institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone and fax number and email address.  The abstract/proposal must indicate whether the presentation is an individual paper or complete panel presentation.  Student presenters must be sponsored by a faculty member and must attach a letter of recommendation (on university letterhead) outlining the merits of the work for inclusion in the conference proceedings.

Accepted proposals will be notified by March 4, 2011.  For more information, contact Dr. Donna Nicol at 657-278-4260 or by email at dnicol@fullerton.edu.
