Clash Zones conference on April 5-6

April 2, 2013

The Clash Zones: Identities in (R)evolution conference will take place from Friday, April 5th to Saturday, April 6th, 2013 in MIT Building 32.  The borders and boundaries where political, ethnic, religious, racial, national, and other factions meet are hotbeds for ideological and psychological tensions that affect marginalized gender and sexual identities.  Within these “clash zones,” anything from eruptive transformations (revolutions) to gradual modifications (evolutions) might occur.  This interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender studies conference will investigate how frictions produced in these “clash zones” impact individual and communal bodies and alter the identity categories by which we define those bodies.  This conference is free and open to the public; register here.
