Call for Papers

This 3-day international conference will provide a multi-disciplinary forum for researchers, authors, artists and activists to raise awareness of intersex issues, and discuss the latest cutting-edge research from a broad range of specialisms. People with intersex traits have naturally occurring sex characteristics which are considered to sit outside the binary norms associated with male and female bodies. Intersex bodies are frequently labelled ‘disordered’ and are subjected to treatment to ‘correct’ aspects of the body which are not considered to fit within the notions of a ‘typical’ male or female body. This conference is motivated by a need to combine ideas and expertise to increase knowledge, visibility and acceptance of intersex.

We welcome attendance from postgraduate students, academics, activists and advocates working in the area of intersex, interested members of the public, medical practitioners, legal specialists, authors, artists, and anyone who has an interest in intersex issues. This conference will provide a safe space for intersex and non-intersex attendees to network in order to further the development of intersex knowledge.
We invite the submission of abstracts for a 20-minute paper from individuals with an interest in, but not limited to, the following areas:
Intersex activism
• Intersex and the creative arts
• Media, culture and intersex representations
• Linguistics
• Intersex terminology
• Intersex and popular culture
• Intersex healthcare and the patient experience
• The history of intersex
• Legal and human rights
• Politics and policy reform
• LGBTQ and intersex
• Intersex and education and employment
• Intersex literary narratives
• Intersex and the family

Abstracts should be submitted to Megan Walker via email to mewalker@lincoln.ac.uk by Wednesday 9 January 2019 and should include:
