Thinking Gender 2024: “Dystopian Realities, Feminist Utopias”

March 1 @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm

UCLA’s CSW|Barbra Streisand Center presents 34th Annual Graduate Student Research Conference on Friday, March 1st, 2024.

Thinking Gender 2024’s conference theme, “Dystopian Realities, Feminist Utopias,” considers what it means to live in the cataclysmic wake of racial capitalism, settler colonialism, and neoliberalism. At the same time, the theme celebrates how feminist, queer, and BIPOC scholarship, activism, and art enact utopias by imagining alternatives to hegemonic structures.

The theme seeks to explore how dystopianism serves as an apt metaphor to explore and critique social and political issues related to gender, race, class, and sexuality and how utopianism is an ethical mandate to imagine a better present and future.

IRLE is a co-sponsor of this event.

Date: March 1, 2024
