Conference on Women and Gender 2015
Friday, March 27, 2015
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The Women and Gender Studies Program is pleased to announce that the annual Seton Hall University Conference on Women and Gender will be held March 27, 2014, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
This year's conference is not organized around any one theme. Rather, the organizers are looking to offer a collection of exciting sessions that reflects the dynamic, productive diversity of perspectives and approaches characterizing the current discussion about women and gender. We warmly invite presenters exploring any topic addressing women and gender from all fields—including the humanities, social sciences, law, business, or experimental sciences—and all professions, such as business, law, medicine, and non-profit administration.
The conference's primary goal is consistent with the ideals of a liberal arts institution such as those articulated by Cardinal Newman in The Idea of a University: to provide an interface between the academic and the experiential in order to enrich lived life. Consequently, papers should be academic in nature and grounded in scholarship. They should also be accessible to a general audience of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff. We welcome the participation of both students, faculty, and staff, with the proviso that graduate and undergraduate panels must have a faculty discussant. We will accept both panels and individual papers.
