Interesting conference coming up at John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH on Colonization, Class and Women. the CFP is below:

Members of the John Carroll Community kindly invite submissions for our Fall Feminist Conference. Papers (1500 – 2500 words), abstracts (at least 500 words), and any proposals for workshops, panels, or discussions are welcome. Submissions should address colonization and its affects on women of color through feminist theory or interdisciplinary perspectives. As activist members of the John Carroll student body, we are sponsoring this conference as a continued effort to educate our community on topics related to women’s issues and feminist theory.

The spirit of the conference is thoroughly collaborative across ranks and disciplines, especially in terms of faculty- student collaboration. All accepted presentation will be paired with a commentator of a different rank (i.e. faculty papers will be assigned student commentators and vice versa). Papers, abstracts, and proposals may be submitted by individuals of any rank or, in cases where faculty- student collaboration is already established, by student- faculty partners. Faculty members or students interested in being a commentator should refer to the contact information below.

Submissions will be reviewed anonymously; therefore, names and ranks should appear on a cover page in a document separate from the submission. Please email all entries to Anastasia Mitchell at no later than September 1st, 2010. Decisions will be made by September 20th, 2010.
