- This is a follow-up to the event (Women’s Marches in Washington and Vancouver), local organizers are holding a public discussion to deconstruct elements of the white-centric feminism that led to much of the poor representation witnessed at the March. The panelists—including individuals who attended and did not attend the March—will share their ideas on how to move forward as we continue to organize and build on the movement, with inclusivity and intersectionality at the forefront.
This event will take place on Monday, February 20th, 2017 from 6-8pm at the Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings St. Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territories

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
As part of Outweek (feb 6-13), The Pride Collective is organizing Queer U, an annual graduate level academic conference on sexualities and genders. The conference centers on bringing the research and work of graduate students and established scholars from across the west coast of north america and beyond to a broad audience in an attempt to foster understanding and discussion.
This year, the theme is “Sewing Seeds and Setting Roots”. We are focusing on being able to give everyone who participates something to take away at the end of they day, so that they can develop their own thoughts and build on it in ways that are relevant to their lives. Whether this is a list of useful resources or literal tools to use to start discussions, our aim is to give everyone the foundation to work off of the histories we often forego and forget, and the confidence to make the changes they want to see happen in the world. Please try to work this into your presentation, but any and all submissions will be considered.
This call for papers is open to graduate contributors and established scholars from any department or area of research that relates to sexuality and gender. Strong undergraduate submissions are also accepted. Workshop Proposals related to community are welcome as well. All topics are welcome; however Queer U is especially seeking submissions dealing with the following topics:
-Temporalities of Queer/Trans* Spaces
-Innovative looks at the Relationship Between Community and Identity
-Relationships Between Community and Wellness
-Anti-racist, Indigenous, and/or intersectional feminist approaches are encouraged!
-Intersections of Queer/Trans* Communities with Systems of Power
if interested, send in a short (300 word or less) abstract outlining the paper, presentation, and/or workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 20th, 2014. Please Title email Queer U abstract.
