The goal is to put together a fun, lively series of events in which FEMMSSters can reconnect with each other and welcome new folks into the FEMMSS community.

FEMMSS will host one event in each of June, July and August, 2022

Deadline for submitting proposals: March 15, 2022

Presenters will be informed by April 15, 2022

Who can submit proposals?

Current, new, or potential FEMMSSters. A FEMMSSter is someone who has attended a FEMMSS event or whose interests align with the FEMMSS mission.

What does an event look like?

Events can address any topic of interest to a FEMMSS audience (you can check out the FEMMSS mission statement to get an idea of the range of topics FEMMSS embraces) and  take any of a number of different forms (panel, talk, workshop, guided discussion, or some other form).

Events should be planned for 2 to 3 hours.

As a default, these events will be scheduled for a Friday afternoon (Eastern time), although timing is flexible, depending on the location of the presenters. FEMMSS folks span the globe.

Presenters will be asked to follow good practices regarding accessible presentations.

How do I submit a proposal?

Here is the link to the submission form.

Proposals will include:

1)     a 250-500 word description of

       the goal and content of the event, and

       the format of the event.

2)     a maximum 250 word statement about how the proposed event will contribute to the diversity of FEMMSS. This includes diversity of topics explored, diversity of disciplines, and the diversity of social identities of those involved in FEMMSS conversations.

3)     a brief (100 words/person) biography of the event organizers

The committee particularly welcomes proposals from members of underrepresented groups or on topics that represent the interests and perspectives of underrepresented groups.

Our goals for these events include:

       provide content and activities that align with the FEMMSS mission and are of interest to FEMMSSters

       provide a platform for members of the FEMMSS community, particularly members of underrepresented groups (understood to include diversity of social identity (e.g., ability status, gender identity, sexuality, nationality, racial identity, etc.)

       foster a diverse and supportive community and provide opportunities for FEMMSSters to cross boundaries among disciplines and between the academy and the public

Proposals will be considered with these goals in mind.
