“Science and Gender Matters: No Limits 2013”
March 1-2, 2013 at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln
Hosted by the UNL Women’s and Gender Studies Program
“No Limits” is an annual student conference dedicated to crossing boundaries between disciplines and exploring a wide range of women’s and gender issues. We invite proposals from undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates on any topic from any discipline related to women’s issues, lives, histories or cultures; feminism; or women’s and gender studies. Creative writing, visual arts, film, music, performances, workshops, and academic papers are all welcome. Proposals for individual presentations or pre-made panels are accepted.
While papers and panels can address a variety of themes, this year’s keynote and panel discussion will address the conference theme of “Science and Gender Matters.” Janet Kourany, feminist philosopher of science and professor at the University of Notre Dame, will deliver the keynote talk “But What Happens When the Scientists Are Women?” In addition, UNL associate professor Sarah Gervais will lead a panel discussion on “Applying Gender to Psychology Research: Helping Students Create New Knowledge.” Her students will describe their experiences working with Gervais’ research team and answer questions about their work and research from the audience.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PANELS
for a conference on
DIVERSITY IN PHILOSOPHY
May 29-May 31, 2013
University of Dayton, Dayton, OH
This conference examines and addresses the underrepresentation of women and other marginalized groups in Philosophy. Participants will focus on hurdles and best practices associated with the inclusion of underrepresented groups. It will focus on such questions as:
- Why do white males continue to be over-represented among Philosophy majors, graduate students, and faculty members, especially given that most other fields in the sciences and humanities are increasingly diverse?
- What are some effective ways to improve the recruitment, retention and advancement of women and other underrepresented groups?
- What roles do implicit bias and stereotyping play in who advances in Philosophy?
- How can the climate for women and other marginalized groups be improved?
- What role can philosophers who study marginalized groups play in advancing underrepresented groups in Philosophy?
- What can Philosophy learn from National Science Foundation ADVANCE initiatives that address how to recruit and advance women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields?
- How can we improve the climate for all underrepresented groups in Philosophy, including those who are LGBTQ, disabled, first generation in college, or economically disadvantaged?
Goals of the conference include creating opportunities for networking and building supportive communities as well as sharing cutting edge research.
We invite papers arising from relevant research programs, or about insights arising from relevant professional experience, including research, service and teaching work. We invite individual presentations of 20 minutes with 10 additional minutes of discussion, or panels consisting of three 15 minute presentations with a total of 15 additional minutes of discussion. You may submit abstracts of papers (200-300 words) or panels (up to 3 abstracts) below. Only one submission per person. Panels should only be submitted once. To submit an abstract or panel, click on “Diversity in Philosophy Conference May 29-31, 2013” in the left sidebar at www.apaonlinecsw.org.
We encourage presenters to give accessible, engaging presentations. All conferences rooms can accommodate PowerPoint. Every effort will be made to accommodate participants with disabilities.
Submission Deadline: February 1, 2013
On June 1, 2013, immediately following the conference, there will be a workshop for training members of CSW-sponsored site visit teams.
