We invite paper abstracts and complete panel, workshop, and roundtable proposals on all aspects of gender and embodiment. We especially encourage those that engage the conference theme to discuss feminism in relation to the themes of (im)mobility, trafficking, and movement. Gayle Rubin’s landmark essay, “The Traffic in Women: Notes on the ‘Political Economy’ of Sex,” provides a touchstone for SEWSA 2015 conference theme, with its references to cultural anthropology, theories of sex and gender, activism, histories of sexual subcultures, deviance, SM, prostitution, and “modes of reproduction.”
