Thinking Gender, Pre-existing Conditions
28th Annual Thinking Gender Graduate Student Research Conference
March 1-2, 2018
UCLA Faculty Center
The UCLA Center for the Study of Women invites submissions of paper, poster, speed pitching research roundtable, and visual arts proposals for our 28th Annual Thinking Gender Graduate Student Research Conference. This year’s conference theme, Pre-existing Conditions, will focus on the interactions of health and gender as a play on the current, on-going discussions about gender-focused health and healthcare. Pre-existing Conditions invites conversations about the directions and foci of intersectional and multi-contextual approaches to health and well-being. With our focus on gender and health, Thinking Gender 2018, Pre-existing Conditions, welcomes submissions of graduate student projects on a wide range of health and health-related topics (see the attached call or visit http://csw.ucla.edu/TG18CFP for details).
