Bursting Gender's Bubble, An Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Conference
April 4th, 2014
McKenna Hall 210
Let’s break open the bubble…

Sponsored by the GeNDer Studies Program of the University of Notre Dame
and the Gender and Women's Studies program of St. Mary’s College
The University of Notre Dame, along with co-sponsors Saint Mary’s College will host an undergraduate conference for Gender Studies on April 4 & 5, 2014 on Notre Dame’s campus in South Bend, Indiana. Submissions focusing on any area of original research-based scholarship in gender studies (including, but not limited to, work in literary criticism, sociology, theology, anthropology, economics, psychology, biology) have been accepted from colleges and universities in the Midwest. We welcomed scholarship that dealt with the significance of gender—and the cognate subjects of sex, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, religion, and nationality—in all areas of human life, especially in the social formation of human identities, practices, and institutions.
