2024 International Gender and Sexuality Studies Conference

September 28 - 29 Ι 9 a.m.

Nigh University Center

The International Gender and Sexuality Studies Conference (IGSSC) is presented by the Women’s Research Center and the BGLTQ+ Student Center at the University of Central Oklahoma with assistance from the UCO chapter of the National Organization for Women. In tandem, these organizations promote engagement with Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality issues. 

 

The theme for the ninth annual International Gender and Sexuality Studies conference is “Recognition, Resistance, Resilience.” Drawing on foundational feminist thinking on solidarity, social justice and self-care, the conference invites the many and varied ways that people have learned to see and take care of each other with intersectionality and inclusive justice in mind. What work does it entail to recognize a body and personhood to its fullest extent? What motivates practices of (self-)care and to what end? What are the possible ties and continuities between recognizing people for who they are/strive to become and the kinds of resistance and resilience that, in Elizabeth A. Flynn’s words, “[bring] attention to choices made in the face of difficult and even impossible challenges”? With your participation, we hope to take up these questions, among others, during our two-day conference, while sustaining a productive and positive space for students, scholars, activists, and community members alike.

Our keynote speaker will be Anna Cox, MFA,  author of "I Keep My Worries in my Teeth" (2020) and director of the Studio School at Oklahoma Contemporary. Drawing from her background in photography and pedagogy, she will deliver a talk on her fiction writing practices and collaborations with artists.
