Due to the GWC strike in effect since March 15th, 2021, IRWGS will be postponing the Spring 2021 Graduate Student Conference on Radical Care, previously scheduled for April 2nd. The new date for this event will be communicated at a later point.
We are excited to announce that this semester the IRWGS is hosting a one-day graduate student conference on the theme of “Radical Care.” We hope to bring students together to ask how the field of Gender & Sexuality Studies should engage in theorizing and practicing care in the current moment and a post-pandemic future. Very broadly, we are looking for work that both engages, and pushes beyond, new scholarship in the field which has returned to the genealogy of care as a crucial, yet under-examined praxis of radical politics.
