Gender involves social and cultural understandings of sexual difference and the practices and behaviors that support or challenge those understandings. We welcome proposals from Houston area undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines for individual papers, panels, poster presentations, visual art presentations, creative writing, or performance art. The Gender Conference is held annually each spring semester.
