The aim of this conference is to bring together postgraduate students and early career researchers from across Australia to share their work and research with their peers and to continue building a collegial and collaborative environment for South Australian and Australian students. This conference is interdisciplinary and diverse but grounded by a strong intersectional feminist perspective. A fundamental aspect of feminist ethic is inclusivity, but we recognise that feminist perspectives and spaces have been historically White. We want to disrupt and decentre Whiteness at our conference this year by driving an emphasis on the intersection of gender, sex and sexualities with race, including Indigenous, POC, and migrant and refugee issues and experiences, and the colonised, decolonised and postcolonial spaces.

The 2019 theme Past, Present and Future: contested histories and emerging identities aimed to explore the concepts of gender, sex and sexualities in the past, present and future, in relation to and their cross-applicability with the structural, personal, institutional, cultural, symbolic, epistemic, and discursive. This theme is purposefully broad and can be applied to any number of issues, theoretical and practical, that affect the wider community. Previous conferences have featured papers from students of Sociology, Gender Studies, Politics, History, Visual Art, Creative Writing, Health Science, Law, Philosophy, Linguistics, Theology and more.

Past, Present and Future 2019 was hosted by the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender.

We acknowledge the Kaurna people, the original custodians of the Adelaide Plains and the land on which the University of Adelaide’s campuses at North Terrace, Waite, Thebarton and Roseworthy are built.
