We envision “interventions” as opportunities for learning and teaching with our students, colleagues, and communities within and outside the University. Making Interventions provides a forum for sharing and developing collaborative, creative, and interdisciplinary feminist scholarship.
What do you make when you’re making change? What does it look like? How does it work, what work does it do? With whom do you make it? We invite submissions of presentations on work, and performances of work by scholars, artists, makers, practitioners. Proposals may take the form of (but are not limited to) a paper, round table, art exhibition, performance, workshop, skillshare, or training that speak to the following commitments:
Creative Ecologies | Digital Humanities | Public Humanities
Social Practice | Critical Curation | Play/Play-making | New Materialisms
Queer of Color Critique | Critical Pedagogy | Labor & Solidarity
Economies | Environmental Justice | Transnational feminisms
Decoloniality | Critical Race/Ethnic Studies | Affect Theories
Reproductive & Healing Justice | Prison Abolition
Disability Studies | #BlackLivesMatter | Trans* Studies
Sex & Sexuality | Citizenship | Borders | Migrations
Fat Studies | Queer Aesthetics | Femininities/Masculinities
Religion & Spirituality | Queer Kinship

New, extended deadline for submissions is Friday June 30, 2017 at 5:00 PM EST. Notifications will be sent out at the end of July 2017.
