Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Research Conference 2018

The deadline for submitting artwork has passed. Contact if you have further questions.

The University of South Dakota Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program seeks submissions of artwork for a juried exhibition held in conjunction with our biennial conference. This exhibit will be held in the John A. Day Galleries at the University of South Dakota March 7 - 15, 2019.

The 2019 conference theme is “(Un)Told Stories.” In the past year, the #MeToo movement catalyzed an international discussion about continuing widespread sexual harassment and sexual violence. It has also raised awareness about the context in which stories are told, heard or silenced. The 2019 conference seeks work that grapples with the personal and societal politics of storytelling at the intersection of gender and sexuality and other marginalized group identities, both today and historically.

Works should connect in some way with gender or sexuality and the conference theme. Maximum 3 artworks per artist.
