Call for papers: Global Gender Justice Symposium

The Gender Justice Research Community at George Mason University is sponsoring a one-day Global Gender Justice symposium to be held April 17, 2008 on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University.  The keynote speaker will be Chilean poet, essayist, and human rights activist Marjorie Agosin, winner of numerous awards for both her human rights work and her literary achievements. We seek proposals for papers and creative works on any topic related to human rights and gender in a global framework, with an eye toward fostering interdisciplinary discussions of issues that might include genocidal rape as a human rights violation, the impact of war on women andchildren, women and the worldwide peace movement, gender and humanrights activism, and others.  We currently envision 15-minute presentations by individual participants, but welcome proposals forother formats, particularly when necessary for collaborative and/or creative presentations.  Further information about this symposium is available here.Send 300-word proposals and one-page curriculum vita to Dr. Tamara Harvey or English Dept.,George Mason University, 4400 University Dr., MS 3E4, Fairfax,VA  22030) by January 15, 2008.
