The University of Windsor Feminist Research Group (FRG) is hosting a conference on
MARCH 28, 2015 at the University of Windsor showcasing graduate and undergraduate research.

Deadline: January 30, 2015

The conference will be held on the University of Windsor campus, and registration is open to all students, faculty, and community members.

The theme of the conference is Gender Based Oppressions: Roots and Solutions. As in previous years, this year’s conference theme is broad and will focus on issues pertaining to feminism and anti-oppression works and research.

We are looking for a diverse array of presentations by graduate students from any discipline that incorporate, either directly or indirectly, issues related to femininity/masculinity, gender, sexuality, feminism, and any other anti-oppression work.

A contributed presentation may be a research report, a case study, a methodological presentation, a theoretical or conceptual paper, a musical composition, or a visual presentation. Works in progress are encouraged. Presenters are encouraged to make their presentations accessible to a diverse audience (i.e., avoid jargon). Submissions are not limited to dissertation or thesis work, but are open to course term papers and other research.

We are also looking for posters and exhibits (please see below for details) by undergraduate students.

To submit a presentation for consideration, please submit the following information to no later than January 30, 2015:

  • Name
  • Discipline and Program of Study (Undergraduate, MA, or PhD)

2015 FRG Conference: Presentation Formats

This year we have three possible presentation formats: Panel presentations, Poster presentations, and Exhibit sessions. Each type of presentation format is described below.

Panel presentations provide the opportunity for a group of 3-4 presenters to examine a topic from a variety of perspectives. The presentation involves a series of short presentations linked in some way around a particular issue. Each panel will be allotted approximately 75 minutes with an additional 5 to 10 minutes for questions at the end. Each panel presenter has no more than 20 minutes per presentation. Although you do not have to submit your abstract as part of a panel (i.e., we will place you in a panel), you may request to present your work with one or multiple colleagues (or someone you know who is also applying). Each panel presenter must submit one abstract that briefly summarizes the topic under investigation.


Poster presentations are visual displays on poster boards of a selected topic. The researcher accompanies the poster for a set period of time which provides them with an opportunity to engage in intense and active discussion with other conference participants. While posters may

not be a familiar style of presentation for all disciplines, it can be used effectively for many types of research and explorations. Individuals may present research-in-progress or completed work. Presenter(s) are expected to be available at their poster to discuss their work with other conference attendees.


Exhibit Sessions are for creative or artistic productions that do not conform to traditional methods of presentation (e.g., paper presentation). These forms of presentation may be live installations, musical composition, or visual art. They may also include a brief oral presentation. When you submit a proposal for an art or music presentation, please ensure that you specify the nature of your presentation and the room or space requirements as well as other information that you think is relevant to the presentation of your work.
