The Seventh Annual South Australian Gender, Sex and Sexualities Conference aims to bring postgraduate and early career researchers together to share their work and collaborate with likeminded researchers. It also provides an opportunity for researchers to network with peers in your field of study.
The conference will run over two days, Tuesday the 22nd and Wednesday the 23rd of September, at the Flinders University Victoria Square campus. Due to current travel restrictions due to COVID-19 concerns, we are sourcing our keynote speakers (TBA) from South Australia. We are however operating under the assumption that the conference will take place in September as planned, so we welcome submissions for standard presentations from postgraduate and early career researchers from interstate. We are working to ensure that other arrangements will be made if travel restrictions or social distancing measures prevent people from physically attending the conference as planned.
In order to open our conference to a wider audience and range of presenters, we are considering any submissions which relate to the study of Gender, Sex and Sexualities. This year’s theme has been kept purposefully open in order to attract presentations on a variety of issues, both theoretical and practical. This is an interdisciplinary conference and we are looking to showcase research from a variety of subject areas. Previous presenters have included students and ECRs from the fields of Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Creative Writing, Health Science, History, Indigenous Studies, Law, Linguistics, Philosophy, Politics, Sociology, Visual Art, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
