  • Artivism, public space, and social networks
  • Queer-activism, feminism and new masculinities

O Comité Científico incentiva a apresentação de propostas nas seguintes categorias:
  • Individual paper. Individual paper presentations are 20 minutes long to be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The proposal must include a 300 word maximum abstract.
  • Panel. Organized panels are 90 minutes (three papers, 20 minutes each, followed by 10 minutes discussion) or two hours long (four papers and a discussant). A proposal by the panel organizer (300 words) as well as by each individual presenter is necessary (300 words each). Where an independently submitted abstract appears to fit a panel, the program committee may suggest the addition of a panelist.

  • Performance. A proposal for the presentation of a performance, with introduction by the author and discussion by the speakers. A 300 word abstract must be submitted, including the title, the theme, the formats and an indication of the duration of the performance.
  • Poster Session. A space where presenters can exhibit posters and remain on hand for a scheduled period for discussion will be provided. A 300 word abstract by the poster's author must be submitted.
  • Roundtable. Roundtable sessions provide opportunities for participants to discuss a subject with each other and with members of the audience. Sessions of up to two hours long should include at least four but no more than five presenters. The organizer will solicit position papers of up to 15 minutes from each presenter and will facilitate questions and discussion for the remaining time. Proposals for roundtables should be submitted by the session organizer (300 words).
