Gender and Sexuality in Armenian Studies
Eighth Annual International Graduate Student Workshop
April 21 and 22, 2017
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Deadline for submission of abstracts: December 15, 2016
Drawing on the rich and diverse body of literature produced in the fields of gender and sexuality, we invite graduate students working in history, literature, cultural studies, political science, visual arts, sociology and anthropology to submit abstracts of their work that take the categories of gender and sexuality as critical frames of analysis. As a collective we anticipate the workshop to open up new ways of thinking about Armenian subjects. We will discuss methodologies and strategies that can be productively deployed to give meaning to Armenian landscapes and contribute to critical studies and the historiography of gender and sexuality.
