Gender and Sexuality Writing Collective Annual Graduate Workshop

About This Event

The SBAI Graduate Conference shifted in 2018 to become our annual Writing Collective. The previous conference format invited graduate students to present finished papers to an audience. The aim of the SBAI Writing Collective is to create an intimate space for emerging scholars of gender and sexuality to share their work with a focus on preparing their papers for publication, and is open to both graduate students as well as emerging scholars who have recently completed their graduate studies.

During the Writing Collective, participants engage with one another in interdisciplinary discussions led by established scholars in the humanities, arts, and social sciences whose experience and outstanding research in their respective fields will benefit and help shape the papers. The program of events includes writing workshops, a panel on publishing, and a reception with food and drink.
