    Dear Conference Organizers:
    My dear friend and former student, Lucy Schultz, alerted me to your conference. I am deeply interested in proposing a “performative” submission. I am a dance artist, associate professor of dance at Luther College, and have birthed four sons (vaginally) including one set of twins. I have some very interesting stories including advocacy for autonomy in birthing. This possible submission would consist of movement and personal stories. Would this be a viable consideration for submission? Please advise. In any event, your conference sounds utterly necessary and exciting. Thank you for your work!
    Most warmly,
    Jane Hawley
