Border Crossings: Gender, Sexuality, and Rights Conference


Tue, 11/06/2018 - 08:15 to 17:15
925 N. Tyndall Ave

Please join us for a conference inspired by Gloria Anzaldúa’s seminal contributions to Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies that give us the opportunity to engage with the geographical location of the conference in Arizona and with a wide range of subjects of  international “border crossings.”

Some presentations are related to regional themes of borders and borderlands of the US-Mexican border. Others consider subjects that allow us to compare, contrast, and illustrate the complexity of rights (including, but not limited to violence and the violation of rights, legal concepts of gender/sexual power and norms, international/national dimensions of social/cultural/political/legal constructs of human rights, individual and collective power/empowerment) as well as border crossings (including but not limited to the complexities of physical trespassing of nation-state borders, cultural ruptures, and gendered and sexual transgressions).
