The Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Rochester will hold a two-day writing collective on October 21-22, 2022. The writing collective will provide a lively platform for graduate students, early career researchers, and independent scholars to workshop a paper with peers and faculty from multiple institutions.

The aim of the collective is to create an intimate space for emerging scholars of gender and sexuality to share their work with a focus on preparing their paper for publication. This event is intended as an opportunity for graduate students to consider issues pertaining to gender, sexuality, race, class, and disability. Participants will engage with one another in interdisciplinary discussions led by established scholars in the humanities, arts, and social sciences whose experience and outstanding research in their respective fields will benefit and help shape the papers. We welcome emerging scholars to join us in this program of events that includes writing workshops, a panel on publishing, and a dinner reception.

Please submit your paper (6,000-10,000 words) along with a brief biographical statement including your broader research interest(s) in Word or PDF format by June 15, 2022, to the graduate organizing committee at sbaiwritingcollective@gmail.com

Kind Regards,
The Susan B. Anthony Interdisciplinary Writing Collective Graduate Committee Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies University of Rochester
