The NC State Women’s Center Gender & Equity Research Symposium was created to spotlight research that promote a more equitable and justice oriented society. The symposium, an initiative of the Women’s Center, bridges the interdisciplinary nature of gender and equity work at NC State University by putting social justice and equity research into action.
Participants are encouraged to submit a poster or presentation format proposal. Submissions may address gender, intersectional identity, and/or equity in research. Examples of research include race, gender, class, ableism, and orientation, as well as the use of critical and feminist theories. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Research does not have to be completed by the time of presentation, however you should note if you have not yet carried out research.
Proposals should include an abstract of no more than 200 words and a proposal of no more than 1000 words. Please be sure to complete each step of the proposal form or your proposal will be disqualified. Submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, February 18, 2017. Proposal applicants are informed of their presentation status by Monday, March 6th. The Women’s Center will contact the first author regarding acceptance. The first author will be responsible for passing along pertinent information to any co-authors, including deadlines, acceptance decisions, and logistics information about the poster session. The first author should list anyone involved in the research for publication in the program brochure.
