Save the Date for the 9th annual Gender & Sexuality in Kansas Conference

Planning for the 2022 Gender & Sexuality in Kansas Conference to be held on Friday, March 11th at the Rhatigan Student Center is underway, and the call for presentations is now open.

We invite submissions of original research or scholarship in any discipline from across Kansas. To be considered, presentation proposal abstracts (a 200- to 300-word presentation summary) are due by Feb. 4.

The purpose of this annual interdisciplinary free conference is to showcase the gender- and sexuality-related scholarship happening across our state, highlighting the scholarly and creative work of students, faculty, staff, and community partners, and to provide an opportunity to network across departments and universities within Kansas.

At present, we are planning to hold the conference in person as long as circumstances permit safe gathering, but will be prepared to pivot to a virtual environment if warranted.

If you have any questions, please contact conference organizers Dr. Jodie Hertzog at or Dr. Jennifer Pearson  at in the Department of Sociology at Wichita State.
