Call for papers: “Feminist Interventions, South Asia by the Bay”, A Graduate Student Conference, University of California Santa Cruz, May 2-3, 2014

MAY 2-3, 2014, UCSC
This conference seeks to explore the interrelated, epistemological frameworks of gender studies and area studies in the multiple articulations of what constitutes the subjects and studies of the terrain of ?South-Asia.? We are particularly interested in work that builds on feminist theory to extend histories of regions via a discussion of translation, diaspora, migration, militarism and nationalism, to name a select few. Papers that highlight gender and sexuality as constitutive to regional formations are especially welcome. While the conference will be open to the public, it is primarily designed to create a much-needed space for connecting conversations between graduate students working on issues of gender within South Asia. With that goal in mind, the conference will be
organized along the lines of a seminar with an emphasis on dialogue and critical exchange. Travel and lodging subsidies will be provided to all participants.


Submission Deadline is JANUARY 30, 2014
