Women's Center Symposium Call for Submissions: Divisions/Revisions of Labor
What counts as labor, and who gets to decide? For the 8th Annual Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture, we will explore how questions of identity shape our ideas about labor. What kinds of work are men, women, and trans or nonbinary people expected to perform, and for whom? How do various identities and positionalities—like gender, race, class, and sexuality—inform the work we do? And what does it mean to resist gendered, raced, classed, or otherwise invisible labor? How can we reshape our understanding of what is work and what work matters?
We encourage a broad interpretation of the theme “Divisions/Revisions of Labor” and welcome academic papers, personal narratives, and presentations across all disciplines on a variety of topics, including but not limited to: emotional labor; being trans, gender non-conforming, or nonbinary in the workplace; the glass ceiling; artistic and creative labor; mothering; experiences of parenthood outside the cis-heteropatriarchy; domestic work; the labor of political activism; sex work; global surrogacy; “lean in”; household work and chores; customer service; gendered tech and robots; “effortless” beauty; histories of labor; migrant workers; and customer service.
We welcome submissions from any interested undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty members, or staff members, within and outside of Tufts.
Please submit an abstract of approximately 300 words (no more than 1 page), describing your paper, presentation, performance, or other proposals to Jessica Mitzner (Jessica.Mitzner@tufts.edu) by January 28, 2019.
