Call for Papers--Rooms of Their Own: Women in the Knowledge Economy and Society

May 2-4, 2007
University of Alberta, Edmonton

This three-day conference offers an international forum to discuss the
features of local and global cultures that encourage and impede women's
active, creative, and critical participation in the knowledge economy
and society. We invite contributions from a wide variety of
perspectives: artistic, political, commercial, legal, scientific,
philosophical, and so on. Topics might include (but should not be
limited to)
the re-structuring of work through digital information,

  • styles of corporate management,
  • building local capacity to empower communities, and
  • re-thinking definitions and frames of reference.

We are seeking proposals that engage with the central issues in
innovative and practical ways. Presentations may be in the form of
individual papers, entire panels, workshops, creative pieces,
multimedia projects, and any other alternative formats. Individual
presentations should be 20 minutes long, for inclusion in a 90-minute
session with plenty of time for discussion and feedback. A selection of
conference papers will be published.  Proposals are welcome in
English and French; simultaneous translation will be available during
the conference. Deadline for proposals is January 10, 2007.
