EDUCATING FOR THE FUTURE:
CROSSING BORDERS, BUILDING COALITIONS
IN GRADUATE WOMEN’S STUDIES AROUND THE WORLD 
JUNE 29-JULY 3, 2003
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
BURKSHIRE-MARRIOT CONFERENCE HOTEL
TOWSON, MARYLAND CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Please note: This schedule is still somewhat tentative and subject to change–especially in response to YOUR input. We have tried to honor your preferences about your own presentations, and about what you’d like to hear from others. We have three kinds of sessions: plenaries in the morning that everyone will attend, panels in the afternoon which people will attend in accordance with their interests, and facilitated roundtables, which represent important topics that you wanted to discuss but which not more than one or two of you are working on. We also expect to have some working sessions at meals.


Most of you did not want to write formal papers for circulation in advance (there were one or two exceptions, and if you prefer to do this for your panel, we can easily circulate your paper via email if you mail it to us by June 15.). Given the great diversity of topics, we are uncertain at this point about the possibility of a book’s emerging from this conference–we trust that such endeavors will be forthcoming in the future as a result of our ongoing collaborations. We do, however, want to publish our conference papers both on line and on paper. We will be videotaping, transcribing, and editing the morning plenaries, and we are asking those of you on panels to submit one-paragraph summaries of your talks ideally before the conference but definitely by August 1. We are also asking you for titles of your presentations for the conference program (we have them for some of you, but haven’t included them in this preliminary schedule). We need your titles asap. If we don’t hear from you, we’ll make one up based on prior discussions of your topic!
We are assuming that the program heads on the plenaries on Advancing Women’s Studies will also constitute a Consortium Work Group–which is also open to ANYONE ELSE. The Work Group can meet at breakfasts and/or lunches, and on the evening of July 2.

We are in the process of developing a conference web site–it should be up and running in about two weeks.


Meanwhile, don’t panic if you see your name here in an unexpected way. Your response forms were not always complete, and in some instances we have invented a role for you that seemed appropriate, and that fulfilled OUR dream visions of a good/necessary session. In other instances, we did not include you on the program if you did not so specify–but you can still request to participate! Some of you are now on two sessions, and we hope that’s okay with you. Let us know if there’s a problem. Again, this schedule can (and undoubtedly will) be changed!!!
