The 2018 Call for Dialogues is forthcoming.
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:
- Queering Racial Justice
- Indigenous Sovereignty and Activism
- Black Lives Matter
- Immigration and Refugees
- Digital Spaces
- Popular Culture and Represenations
- Feminism, Race, and the Arts
- Racist Legacy of Seneca Falls
- Women of Color on the Margin of Traditional Feminist Movements
- Intersectional Resistance and Activism
- Constructions of Disability
Proposal Deadline: TBA. Proposals will be accepted through our submission form, which will be 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.
- A 2-3 sentence summary of its focus and relevance to one or more of the conference themes.
- Name of each session organizer.
- Name of one organizer who will serve as the contact person. Include for the contact person her or his 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.
