The fifth annual South Australian Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher gender, sex, and sexualities conference returns in 2018 with Space and Place: Conceptions of movement, belonging and boundaries. The two day conference will be held in Adelaide, South Australia on September 19-20 2018, in Napier 102 lecture theatre at the University of AdelaideNorth Terrace Campus.

The aim of this conference is to bring together postgraduate students and early career researchers from across South 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.

This year’s theme aims to explore the concepts of space and place and their intersections with gender, sex, and sexuality in relation to 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! We are excited to once again bring together a multitude of exciting thinkers over two days.

More information on the conference proceedings will be provided soon. In the meantime, please email us at gsspostgradconference@gmail.com to find out more.
