The theme of this year’s Sexuality, Marriage and Family Studies (SMF) Research Symposium is derived from our commitment to increasing awareness of the changing landscape and intersections of families, relationships and sexualities.
The Committee encourages proposals to reflect critically on any number of integrated topics, focusing on a contemporary perspective and diverse contexts; research that approaches the conference theme from diverse disciplinary approaches.
Subjects may include, but are not limited to:
- Power and privilege at the intersection of race and sexuality
- Relationships in the contact zone
- New directions in intersectional analyses of sexualities, families, and/or relationships
- Cross-cultural perspectives on health and well being
- Cross-cultural relationships and migrations
- Cultural co-existence
- Impact of post-colonization on sexuality, families, and/or relationships
- Cultural or cross-cultural discourses on parenting
Proposals (300-400 words) and a brief CV should be submitted to the Research Symposium Coordinator, Jess Huston at firstname.lastname@example.org, by February 12, 2016.
This conference has historically been focused on providing an avenue for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research; therefore, students are especially encouraged to submit their proposals!
