AREA CALL FOR PAPERS: Mexico Meeting of the Popular Culture
Association in Conjunction with the 5th Annual Congress, UDLA
October 17 - 21, 2001

Searching for papers that relate to:
GENDER: Multicultural and Global Issues

Much has occurred over the last century to provoke major changes in what is
refered to as "gender issues." Attitudes as well as actions have been
especially taken to identify and change barriers that impede women's equality
in the process of social, economic, and political development.

Papers that relate to tendencies in the new generic appearances referring
to women and men at the end of the century and at the beginning of a new
millennium outline the interest of this area. Historical and
cross-cultural perspectives, critical theory, and interdisciplinary
approaches that substantially and explicitly address gender issues and
explore gender-related topics are of special interest. The proposals may
include but are not limited to issues of gender in the areas of art, culture,
literature, history, science, the environment, and community activism and
leadership. Topics that cut across all areas of concern in the national and
international context such as those mentioned below will be themes to be
* Gender and changing attitudes and cultural stereotypes
* Constructs of femininity, masculinity, and sexuality
* Full and equal partnership between women and men
* Empowerment of women
* Woman's participation in community environments, leadership styles and
forms, cross cultural aspects
* Mainstreaming women in the development process as agents as well as
* Intersections (of race, class, gender; of family history and women's
history; etc.)
* Gender and world history
* Diversity of women and their situations
* Woman in the arts
* Gender and the welfare state
* Women in civil society
* Minority women
* Gender and space
* Women and education
* Women and Migration
* Gender and Language
* Gender and Health Issues
* Gender and Popular Culture
* Gender and Religion
* Women and Human Rights

(PANEL DIVERSITY ENCOURAGED: The organizers want to encourage panel proposals
that provide comparative perspectives across time and national boundaries,
that reflect the multi-disciplinary make-up and that point to the
intersection of gender and race/ethnicity/class/age/disability.)
Proposals may be in either English or Spanish. Please send an abstract of 250
words, typed and include a title. Give the name and academic title of each
presenter and give the name and complete address of the main presenter.
Include the telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address of the main
author. It is preferred that abstracts be sent via email, fax or message
service. Normal snail mail is NOT encouraged.

Deadline for proposals is 1 June, 2001, but early proposals find the most
compatible panels. Exhibits, displays, poster sessions are also invited.
This Area is a strand within the Popular Culture Association meeting in
Puebla, Mexico. For full information about the conference, check the
