SdBI Summer Institute Call Out


Organized by Dr. Geneviève Rail, The Summer Institute is a week-long
feminist course approached from a multi-disciplinary perspective
(humanities, social sciences, visual and performing arts).
Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as community members are
welcome to attend, either for credit or as a conference. The Summer
Institute consists of workshops, panels and discussions led by a
diversity of instructors and speakers from within and outside
Concordia. ​

For 2017, the Summer Institute's theme is "Mobilizing In/Visible Bodies"
The course focuses on women and bodies that intersecting systems of
oppression render in/visible. Scholars, activists, and artists from
Concordia and from organizations working with marginalized communities
in Montreal will convene to explore, together with learners, the
intersections of gender, bodies, and the politics of visibility. The
core idea is to mobilize people and to address the in/visible body as
an inscriptive surface and a site of activism.

More information can soon be found through the Simone de Beauvoir
website (<>) or by directly
emailing me at<> or
Gen Rail at<>.

*Additionally, if you're a community leader or scholar yourself and
you have some ideas for a workshop or discussion you might want to run
as part of the S​ummer Institute, don't hesitate to email us a brief
proposal (outlining the content of the proposed workshop/panel and a
bit about yourself or your organization) by March 26th! (More info on
the workshop call out here:

I look forward to seeing you there!
