The 24th Annual Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies International Graduate Conference featuring Susan B. Anthony Keynote peformance lecture with Tavia Nyong'o, professor of African American Studies, American Studies, and Theater Studies at Yale University. 

Graduate students are invited from all disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and the arts to submit research on questions related to the conference theme and especially in response to the keynote speaker’s research. In addition to scholarly papers, we encourage creative interpretations of this year’s theme. Performances, collaborative presentations, and visual and sound works will also be welcomed.

What is voice and in what ways does it shape our identity? How do we understand the voice in various disciplines? Often the voice is considered in terms of its complex relationship to presence and absence, as a marker of identity in social space, and as a play between a material body and its discursive function. Understanding the capacity of the voice to call bodies to action while also functioning as a limit, horizon, and/or border, this conference invites discussions on the nature and the role of voice in relation to issues of gender, sexuality, race, disability, and more. Read more on Facebook

 Discussions might include, but are not limited to:


- Narration of identity (oral accounts, autobiography, self-inscription, testimony)

- The voice being “lost” by interpretation or translation

- Giving power and agency to the voiceless

- Individual vs. communal voice(s)

- Materiality and non-signifying registers of the voice

- Voice and visual media

- Voice in queer, gender, and/or critical race theory

- Noise vs. silence

- The breakdown of the voice (entropy, disintegration, chaos)

- Disrupting, distancing, escaping the voice

- Decolonizing the voice/voice and violence

- The artificial, hybrid, or cyborg voice

- Media archaeology and the voice

- The body as a threshold for the voice; the voice as the threshold of the body

- Listening and reception theory

In celebration of our Quinceañero and the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in New York State, the theme for this year's Rally is "Civic Engagement - Giving back to my Community." The activities and workshops will be facilitated by a talented selection of Latinas and female leaders that are involved in our community and then culminated by a Quinceañera/Prom Fashion Show Finale. Sponsored by Latinas Unidas. This year's event hosted by the Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester.

Reginald Mebane, director of CDC's Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, will give a Leadership Keynote: "Evolving Pathogens, Evolving World, Evolving Leaders." 

Throughout time, many disease pathogens have continuously evolved and subsequently re-emerged more virulent and stronger than ever. As world populations continue to grow, people are living and working longer than ever before resulting in an active workforce that now includes five generations. Taking a cue from the world of scientific pathogens, leaders too must continue to evolve and adapt their leadership styles to ever evolving workforce demographics in an ever evolving world. 

The talk is open to the University community. Register online. Sponsored by University Resource Groups.
