Calling all postgrads and early career researchers!

Following the success of our 2016 Symposium, the Gender and Sexuality Cluster of the South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership is pleased to announce the upcoming interdisciplinary conference on the theme of ‘Gendered Voices’. Taking place on 18th/19th May 2017 at the University of Bristol, we invite submissions from all postgraduates and early career researchers (including postdocs) from SWW DTP-affiliated universities (Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Aberystwyth, Bath, Bath Spa, Southampton and Reading).

We welcome submissions from any discipline, as we aim to bring together researchers from across the academic spectrum to discuss different perspectives on gender, sex, sexuality, and the body. The theme ‘Gendered Voices’ could include, but is not limited to:

●     Voices of protest

●     Gendered expression, e.g. through theatre, performance, and song

●     Literary voices; art and literature as a mode of communication

●     Voices in history

●     Unheard/hidden voices

●     Voices of authority; in the law, hierarchies, domestic spheres, etc.

●     Virtual voices/ online identities

We will accept both twenty-minute papers and ‘flash paper’ sessions with five minute presentations, where researchers can present a research problem, reflections on their work or a short summary of their thesis. We invite you to submit abstracts to by Tuesday 31st January.

For a twenty-minute paper please submit a 250 word max. abstract, and a 100 word max. abstract for a flash paper. Please include your name, department, university and position in the email, as well as the type of paper you are submitting. We will reply to all applicants by Monday 29th February. General registration will open in March. Attendance is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

We hope that the day will spark productive and engaging discussions across disciplines and we look forward to meeting you all!

Please contact us at with any questions.
