“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

Politically Queer: Social In(queer)y and the University: Call for Papers


The New School For Social Research
Union of Political Science Students Presents

The 2010 Graduate Student Conference

Friday, April 30th 2010

This year’s Department of Politics Graduate Conference explores the application of Queer Theory within social research. Queer Theory, though firmly cemented in the humanities, has yet to have as great an impact in the social sciences. Twenty years after its inception (how) are scholars using queer theory? What are the boundaries and limitations of a queer inquiry? How has it changed and where can it take critical theory, critical thought and action now? Where and what is queer theory today?

We invite submissions from all subfields of Political Studies, as well as from other disciplines.

Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to:

economic justice / feminism / gender / heteronormativity / history / identity / immigration / media / memory / methodologies / law / politics of the body / public-private space / race / representation / social movements / visuality

Please submit a 150-word abstract by January 29th, 2010.

Participants will be notified by February 25th, 2010. Presenters will be asked to submit final copies of their papers no later than two weeks before the conference.

For the submission of abstracts or additional information, please contact:
