Global Status of Women and Girls: "Intersectionality: Understanding Women's Lives and Resistance"
This year's conference theme is Intersectionality: Understanding Women’s Lives and Resistance in the Past and Present. The registration will be online on October 15th 2018.
This interdisciplinary conference uses tools of the arts, humanities, social sciences and other fields to address challenges faced by women and girls around the world, both historically and today. Our 2019 conference theme marks the 30th anniversary of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s use of the term “intersectionality” as well as the 400th anniversary of the first Africans arriving in Hampton, Virginia, and the Jamestown Colony in 1619.

Given the close proximity to Jamestown and Hampton, this year’s conference will especially highlight the ways in which gender intersects race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other identity markers in complex ways.

The deadline for registration is December 1, 2018.
