A friend sent this announcement to me:


A multidisciplinary conference, The Art of Gender in Everyday Life IX, will take place at Idaho State University on Wednesday, March 7 through Friday, March 9, 2012.

Gender is not a given. Its meaning and significance are constantly in flux.

This conference will explore the various ways in which gender is crafted, celebrated, endured, deciphered, expressed or, in short, the art of how it is lived on a daily basis.

The conference will include, in addition to other gender-related events and workshops: a keynote address on Friday evening by Stephanie Coontz, Professor of History and Family Studies at The Evergreen State College, Olympia WA; a Friday lunchtime talk by an ISU faculty member; and a screening of LUNAFEST.

A formal call for papers, an announcement of our student paper competition, and a registration form can be found on our website at http://www.isu.edu/andersoncenter. Abstracts must be postmarked by Tuesday, November 1, 2011.

For further information, please contact the Anderson Center via phone (208-282-2805) or email [email protected].

Best regards,
Rebecca Morrow, Ph.D.
Director, Anderson Gender Resource Center
Idaho State University
Pocatello, ID
