Upcoming Conferences and Conventions!

2019 Conferences & Conventions

One of the best ways to expand your knowledge and put yourself out there to your professional peers is to network and attend workshops to better your academic and professional profile. While there are a lot of opportunities available here at Mason. Traveling to expand yourself out of the Mason "bubble" should be a priority as well to make yourself known. Conferences and workshops are consistently happening throughout the year, all it takes is some initiative to find them and register. Aside from the three listed below, you can always check social media hangout pages like livingsocial.com, evenbrite.com, and even finding association pages related to your field of interest. 

Global Status

Global Status of Women and Girls Conference

Christopher Newport University’s College of Arts and Humanities, in partnership with Norfolk State University, seeks abstracts for the forthcoming Conference on the Global Status of Women and Girls to be held at Christopher Newport, March 21-23, 2019.

This year's conference theme is Intersectionality: Understanding Women’s Lives and Resistance in the Past and Present

This interdisciplinary conference uses tools of the arts, humanities, social sciences and other fields to address the challenges faced by women and girls around the world, both historically and today. Our 2019 conference theme marks the 30th anniversary of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s use of the term “intersectionality” as well as the 400th anniversary of the first Africans arriving in Hampton, Virginia, and the Jamestown Colony in 1619.

Given the close proximity to Jamestown and Hampton, this year’s conference will especially highlight the ways in which gender intersects race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other identity markers in complex ways. To this end, they are welcoming proposals that use an intersectional approach to understand these subjects, as well as the interconnectedness of systems of oppression, power and privilege.

Topics may include, but are not limited to the past and/or present role of intersectionality in:
  • Social movements
  • Women’s writing and narratives
  • Artistic representations of women (e.g., film, literature, music)
  • Motherhood and family life
  • Sexuality and gender identity
  • Reproductive rights
  • Politics
  • Social media
  • Employment
  • Poverty
  • Education
  • Health
  • Violence
  • Religion
  • Law
Submissions from any academic discipline are welcome, including but not limited to:
  • Art
  • History
  • Philosophy
  • Religious studies
  • Sociology
  • Psychology
  • Environmental science
  • Medicine
  • Biomedical ethics
  • Economics
  • Political science
  • Gender studies
  • Communication studies
  • Literature

Symposium– A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common issue. A symposium includes a chair, three to four presenters, and a discussant (optional). Symposia should have the dual goals of providing a diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.

Poster– Posters offer the opportunity for individual presenters to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss research of particular interest to them. Authors present their research using a visual medium with key information displayed free-standing bulletin board.
