Wednesday 25 January 2012
East Midlands Conference Centre

This conference aims to bring together scholars in the social sciences and humanities who are doing cutting-edge theoretical and/or empirical research on young people’s lived experiences in relation to gender and/or sexuality in contemporary society.

This deliberately small-scale conference, involving no more than 15 participants, will provide a platform for in-depth and productive dialogue. The organisers intend to publish selected contributions as an edited volume or a special issue for a journal.

The conference is free. Refreshments and lunch will be provided on the day.

Abstract Submission:

Please submit, by 15 October 2011, an abstract of no more than 250 words, alongside a brief biographical note (max. 100 words) to Dr. Yip (andrew.yip[at] and Dr. Page ([at]

Preparation for Conference:

All participants must submit a fairly developed paper of 5000 words to the organisers by 5 January 2012, which will be distributed among participants in advance of the conference to facilitate in-depth discussion on the day. More guidelines will follow.

Following the conference, fully developed papers selected for publication must be submitted to the organisers by 26 March 2012.
