b :a collection of opinions on a subject
c :discussion

Join the Tufts Women’s Center for our annual symposium, scheduled for Spring 2018. This year, we will be centering the roots of what a symposium is and through a lively gathering, exchange ideas around topics of Metaphors of the Body.

What are the ways that displacement and dispossession from climate change, state and systemic violence, colonial and other intergenerational trauma, impact our bodies and are represented through bodies? How do we center different modes of care and healing in the face of violence and trauma - for ourselves, our communities, and the dispossessed - as creating new ways of knowing and resistance and how we relate to bodies? How do we disrupt narrative of healing work as temporary and short term to understand that systemic forces create stressors and collective unwellness which require continual practices of healing?

While this will be an opportunity to showcase your academic papers and work through panels, presentations, and poster sessions, we also highly encourage submissions for art (performance, mixed media, poetry; all types of art!), workshops, works in progress, and other non-academic submissions.

Please send all submissions, questions and other thoughts to Koko Li at Submissions are due December 24th 2017.
