See below--thought there might be some overlap between SIGCIS members'
interests and this conference call. The conference is specifically for
grad students' work.

24th Annual Graduate Student Research Conference

Call for papers

Thinking Gender is a public conference highlighting graduate student
research on women, gender and/or sexuality across all disciplines and
historical periods, including future ones. We invite submissions for
individual papers or pre-constituted panels on any topic pertaining to
women, gender, and/or sexuality. This year, we especially welcome feminist
research on: privacy, diversity, and/or demographics in the age of big
data; appetites (pleasure, food, electronics); gender, sexuality, and the
new brain sciences (cognitive sciences, psychobiology); the perils of
“post-feminism” (feminism backlash, hypo/hypersexualities, redefining
feminist activism); gender, sex, and criminality; pleasure and ethics
(media and advertising, sexuality); gendered spaces (spatial theories,
urban planning, domesticity); and self-staging in public discourse
(reality TV, user forums, “selfies”/self-narration and “autographies”).

CSW accepts submissions for both individual papers and pre-constituted
panels from all active graduate students. In order to give everyone an
opportunity to present, we do not accept submissions from people who
presented at Thinking Gender in the previous year. Also no previously
published material is eligible.

Students proposing individual papers are to submit a cover page (provided
on our website), an abstract (250 words), a CV (2 pages maximum), and a
brief bibliography (3-5 sources), for consideration. All components are to
be delivered in one document and labeled according to the submission
guidelines found on the CSW website. For panels, a 250-word description of
the panel topic is required, in addition to the materials that must be
provided for individual paper submissions.

Please visit our website for submission guidelines:

Send submissions to: thinkinggender at women.ucla.edu
Deadline for submissions: Monday, October 14th, 2013 by 12 noon.

Conference is to be held on Friday, February 7, 2014, at the UCLA Faculty

Event is free and open to the public, but please be aware that there will
be a $35 registration fee for presenters, which will cover the cost of
conference materials and lunch at the Faculty Center.
