The biennial Dialogues are a collaborative effort to reinvigorate Seneca Falls as a site of feminist activism and intellectual exchange. We invite students, activists, and teachers to participate in a weekend of dialogue on the following themes:
- Intersectional Resistance and Activism
- Black Lives Matter
- Immigration, Refugees, and Border-Crossing
- Indigenous Sovereignty and Activism
- Queering Racial Justice
- Digital Spaces
- Popular Culture and Representations
- Feminism, Race, and the Arts
- Race and the Seneca Falls Legacy
- Women of Color on the Margin of Traditional Feminist Movements
- Constructions of Disability
- Media Literacy and Bias
Proposal Deadline: April 30, 2018. Proposals will be accepted through our submission form, which is accessible here.
We are seeking group-led sessions that involve active audience participation and focused discussion of issues raised by the conference themes. Any inclusion of pedagogy is always welcome. Session proposals should indicate how organizers will present information, pose questions, and facilitate conversation.
All proposals must include the following:
- Title of the session.
- Identification of relevant conference theme(s)
- A 2-3 sentence summary of session’s focus and relevance to conference theme(s).
- Name of each session organizer and affiliation, if applicable.
- Name of one organizer who will serve as the contact person. Include for the contact person a home or institutional address, email, and telephone number.
- 250-500 word description of the session’s focus and organization. This should include how the organizers will introduce the topic, questions they will pose and a clear explanation of how the organizers will involve the audience in dialogue.
- List of technology needs.
Conference participants will be invited to submit essay versions of their dialogues for inclusion in the on-line Seneca Falls Dialogues Journal.
