Continuing a dialogue begun last year across departments and campuses, the Gender+ Justice Initiative (GJI) invites faculty from across the University to come together this Fall, on October 13, 2017, to share our work and discuss further opportunities for interdisciplinary conversations on issues of sex, gender, sexuality, feminism, intersectionality, and inequality. GJI welcomes proposals that engage these topics from varied perspectives and methodologies and at any stage of development, from rough draft to finished paper.  Panels will consist of 15 minute presentations and discussion.  Please submit a brief abstract (250 words or less) of your paper or presentation using this form by September 1.

About the Gender+ Justice Initiative:
The mission of the Gender+ Justice Initiative (GJI) is to make Georgetown a dynamic hub of knowledge production, community engagement, and policy development on intersectional issues of gender, racial, and economic justice.

Over the last two years, faculty from all three campuses at Georgetown have explored how best to harness and support the work of Georgetown faculty who are deeply engaged in research on gender justice, particularly as it is situated within social justice and civil rights. The GJI hosted a series of events in the 2016-17 academic year to engage faculty and students on our campuses, bring visibility to our on-going work on gender justice, spark collaborative opportunities, and set the stage for a more formal structure to support gender justice research at Georgetown University. A highlight of the year was the GJI Fall Colloquium, which is now an annual event.

Why the “+”? We refer to “Gender+ Justice” to signal that our concerns have gender at the core but extend to race, class, sexuality, and other markers of subordination.
