Thinking Gender 2024: “Dystopian Realities, Feminist Utopias Conference

Join us for the 34th Annual Thinking Gender Graduate Student Research Conference “Dystopian Realities, Feminist Utopias.” Thinking Gender 2024’s conference theme considers what it means to live in the cataclysmic wake of racial capitalism, settler colonialism, and neoliberalism. At the same time, the theme celebrates how feminist, queer, and BIPOC scholarship, activism, and art enact utopias by imagining alternatives to hegemonic structures.

The theme seeks to explore how dystopianism serves as an apt metaphor to explore and critique social and political issues related to gender, race, class, and sexuality and how utopianism is an ethical mandate to imagine a better present and future.

Our in-person program on Friday, March 1, 2024, will be open to the public. Guests who have not pre-registered may be admitted if space permits.
