Announcements | Call for Papers
February 6, 2015: Call for Papers/Proposals for the 31st Annual Conference on The Advancement of Women, which will take place on the campus of Texas Tech University, Friday, April 16-18, 2015. We invite papers and panel proposals that explore the manifold meanings of movement and change as connected to, created by, and/or caught up in the presence of women's, gender, and identity issues, in both contemporary and historical frameworks. Interdisciplinary proposals, as well as those from the disciplines and specialty subject areas across the Texas Tech University campus, are welcome. We will be happy to consider proposals from the professional schools and the administrative offices, as well as those from scholarly areas where women have been historically under-represented, including mathematics, the agricultural and natural sciences, and technology and applied sciences. We also invite students, staff and faculty members in the social and behavioral sciences, the visual and performing arts, the communications fields, and the humanities to present their research. The Program Committee also issues a special invitation to interested parties from other colleges and universities, including Lubbock-area institutions, Angelo State University, and other institutions in the Southwest to present, to participate, and/or to attend this conference. Faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students are all invited to share their work, in the form of research findings, group or single-author projects, and works-in-progress in paper.
