We are pleased to invite paper proposals for an interdisciplinary conference to take place on 20th March 2013 at the University of Manchester. The conference, entitled How Does Gender Mean? Debates and Applications in Modern Britain, aims to bring together scholars and researchers from across the arts and humanities to survey the current climate of gender studies and to open up new avenues of discussion in relation to gender. Specific areas of inquiry that will be considered include everyday life and social change, sexuality and identity, and the environment in order to understand how gender is theorised, given meaning and applied.

Please send abstracts of 300-500 words to Kelly Spring and Paula Chorlton at howdoesgendermean@gmail.com, by Friday 14th December 2012.
