Feminisms at the Lakehead: Continuous Conference

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the on-going concerns around health and safety in gatherings, we have decided to change the way that Feminisms at the Lakehead is traditionally run. In times of great change, it only makes sense that we change as well! 

We are excited to present this year’s Feminisms at the Lakehead: Continuous Conference; an on-going set of speakers and presentations on a variety of feminist research topics, art, and contemporary issues. In keeping with past Feminisms conferences, we invite students, faculty, staff and community members to join in – as presenters, or in the audience! We encourage you to respond to our Call For Presenters (CFP) by following the link below:

The purpose of the continuous conference is to provide all the professional and learning opportunities of a traditional conference, while allowing presenters to participate with flexibility, and with as little risk as possible. You can choose when, and how, you present! This could include: zoom presentations, webinars, panel discussions, moderated or facilitated discussions, workshops and more. We can provide technical support and guidance to ensure a smooth delivery. 

As the pandemic and its impacts are constantly changing, so too will the conference topics. Each month will include a different theme or perspective for topics. Each presentation will be advertised as part of the Feminisms Continuous Conference, free, accessible and open to the public. 

We encourage you to follow the Gender Equity Centre on Instagram & Facebook to keep up to date on submission deadlines, topics of discussion, and other updates regarding feminisms. If you have any questions, please contact us: gec@lusu.ca and put “Feminisms” as the subject

Thank you for your time and consideration,
