Australia Forum on Sexuality, Education and Health

Call For Papers
1st National Conference
Equity and Justice – in Gender, Sexuality,
Education and Health

University of Western Sydney, Parramatta, NSW
22-23 November 2015

The Australia Forum on Sexuality, Education and Health (AFSEH) announces a Call for Papers for its 1st National Conference, to be held on the Parramatta campus of the University of Western Sydney.

AFSEH brings together practitioners, educators, students, researchers and policy makers from across Australia, working in the fields of gender, sexuality, education and health.  The forum enables discussion and debate on contemporary issues and concerns, builds and consolidates networks, and develops collaborative initiatives.

The 1st National Conference seeks to increase the public profile of work on equity and justice particularly pertaining to gender, sexuality, health and education issues today.  The meeting will provide a catalyst for important interdisciplinary work to address these concerns.

Keynote speakers include Simon Blake (Chief Executive Officer of the UK National Union of Students and formerly Chief Executive Officer of Brook – the health charity for children and the National Children’s Bureau’s Sex Education Forum) and Julie Bates (Director of Urban Realists, lobbyist, 'out' sex worker, harm reduction advocate and sex worker rights activist for more than a quarter of a century)

We invite abstracts for papers, posters and symposia presentations. Abstracts should be 300 words long and address one (or more) of the themes below. All abstracts will undergo peer review.

Conference Themes

•   Genders and sexualities in health and education: working together for equity and justice

•   Digital cultures and youth – rights, ethics and responsibilities

•   Intersectionality, sexualities and gender

•   Communities, parents and sexual health – whose rights?

•   Youth-led initiatives – local and international perspectives

•   Popular pedagogies and informal education

It is envisaged that at least two publications will arise from the conference:  a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Sex Education, and a book based on a combination of theoretical and cross-disciplinary educator/practitioner work.

Please include along with your abstract, the presentation’s title, the presenter’s name and affiliation (or list of presenters’ names and affiliations), the conference theme addressed and contact details including an email address.

Send your abstract to Jawed Gebrael J.Gebrael at uws.edu.au<mailto:J.Gebrael at uws.edu.au>
