Intersectional Models of Women's Health: Uniting Theory and Practice
The Institute for Teaching and Research on Women (ITROW) is pleased to announce its Spring 2007 conference, Intersectional Models of Women's Health: Uniting Theory and Practice. The conference aims to bring together scholars, health care providers and advocates for women and hold a dialogue on how the intersections of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and class (poverty) affect women's health. The conference will take place at Towson University, in the Potomac Lounge which is located on the second floor of the University Union.
Call for Papers: If you are interested in presenting at a roundtable session, please send a one-page abstract of your paper. We particularly encourage papers that examine how racism, sexism, heterosexism, class/poverty, or ageism affect women’s health.
Abstracts must be submitted by February 9, 2007. Submissions may be emailed to either Karen Dugger at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ayse Dayi at email@example.com. You may also fax your abstract to (410) 704-3469, or send it via snail mail to ITROW, 8000 York Rd., Towson, MD 21252. Selected conference papers will be considered for inclusion in an ITROW publication.
