UHD 13th Annual Gender Conference

Considering the current COVID-19 climate, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is moving the UHD 2020 Gender Conference to a virtual platform with the use of Zoom to ensure the safety of all of our participants. The proposal deadline is extended to April 6th.

The UHD 2020 Gender Conference will be hosted via Zoom on April 16, 2020.

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.
