The Center for Women's & Gender Studies (CWGS) conference offers both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to share their research with the students and faculty of CWGS, The University of Texas at Austin community, and CWGS community partners. We invite individual papers, creative writing and artistic posters, and performance pieces from participants in any discipline whose research focuses on women's, gender, sexuality, and/or queer studies.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Undisciplining Women’s and Gender Studies.” In the traditional sense of the word, being undisciplined refers to a lack of self control, that is, to be unable to repress impulses and desires. To think of undisciplining in such terms begs an important question: What impulses and desires –what subjective and embodied epistemologies– have been sacrificed in order for Women’s and Gender Studies to gain scientific validity and disciplinary status?
