POCATELLO – Over 40 presenters from across the country will travel to Pocatello to present at the 12th annual Gender and Sexuality in Everyday Life Conference at Idaho State University on March 10 and 11.
Presentations will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Salmon River Suites in the Pond Student Union.
The conference focuses on how ideas and stereotypes concerning gender and sexuality shape and influence many aspects of our daily lives. This year, the conference will feature ISU faculty and student presenters, as well as guests from around the country and world.
“Each year we provide a conference space not only to discuss research, but also to bring the community and the university together to think about how issues of gender and sexuality are impacting life right here in Pocatello and across the southeast Idaho region,” said Jeremy Thomas, director of ISU Gender and Sexuality Studies and chair of the conference organizing committee. “We strive to bring together a variety of academic disciplines and practical concerns in order to address a range of real-world issues, for example, topics of local importance such as community health and economic development.”
