Join us in considering the intersection of women’s gender and other social justice issues as we promote ethical decisions and actions that will create greater equity and sustainability for our planet and its beings.
We sought proposals on the broadly defined theme from across the disciplines addressing research, scholarship, program development, pedagogy, curriculum, creative work and/or community activism in the fields of Ecofeminism, Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, LGBTQ Studies, and Sexuality Studies, especially as they as they intersect with such areas as: Ethnic Studies, Disability Studies, International Studies, Poverty Studies, Peace Studies, and Environmental and/or Sustainability Studies, and other inter-disciplines.
Participants are encouraged to draw upon the range of perspectives on gender and social justice to examine the present and future for our planet. Considering intersections of issues that include (but are not limited to) human oppression, animal exploitation, ecological degradation,as we promote ethical responses, solutions, and mindful decisions that create greater equity and sustainability for our humanity, animals, and earth.
