The fourth annual Gender Matters conference, "Embodying Praxis, Engaging Solutions," will be held at Governors State University on April 11-12, 2014.
Gender Matters is an academic conference that highlights research on gender, women and sexuality across all disciplines and historical periods. This year's conference brings together students, activists and researchers from around the globe to discuss the ongoing role of gender in structuring society.
This year’s theme, "Embodying Praxis, Engaging Solutions," focuses attention on positive deviance, on exploring what works as we seek solutions and improvements to the challenges faced by our world. While conference planners invite work on all matters of gender, we are particularly interested in work that explores how evidence-based practices and outcomes related to gender and/or sexuality are used to affect positive change, behaviors, beliefs, attitudes, policies and procedures.
Pre-registration for the conference is required and the deadline is March 17. Information about the conference, registrations fees, and a preliminary program, can be found at http://www.govst.edu/gendermatters.
