Genders in Translation

Conference/Symposium | September 22 | 10 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Anthony Hall

 Department of Gender and Women's Studies, International Campus at the University of Malaga, Spain

Genders in Translation, a day-long symposium organized by the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies, brings together international interdisciplinary scholars to consider how genders are understood, lived, represented, and translated across diverse cultures, geopolitical regions, and historical moments. Engaging photography, painting, popular culture, language practices, and narrative—these presentations travel from Goya’s Spain to Post-colonial Syria, from opium dens in Queensland Australia to transgender bars in contemporary San Francisco to think about how feminist theories and practices are translated and transformed across sites of difference.
