AMSA announces the call for proposals for its Twenty-Second Annual Conference in Tacoma, Washington March 27-29, 2014. With the conference theme, “Considering Culture: Masculinities in International and Regional Contexts,” and the location in the Pacific Northwest the call for proposals for a variety of presentations continues deepening of the critical study of men and masculinities within and across cultural boundaries.
The Pacific Northwest has been home to indigenous peoples for millennia. In this spirit, we specifically invite proposals that address aspects of masculinities within and across indigenous communities. Additional proposals related to the theme might address regional, national, international, and cross-cultural masculinities. With this theme, AMSA hopes to focus the lens of men’s studies on communities outside the bounds of mainstream discourse. While we particularly encourage proposals that address the conference theme we also invite proposals on a range of other topics relevant to the critical study of men and masculinities, and that reflect AMSA’s mission.
The EXTENDED deadline for submissions of papers, panels and applied workshops is October 31, 2013. The deadline for poster and artwork proposals is December 31, 2013.
