Workshop Applications


In addition to keynote speakers, panel events, and caucuses/pro-caucuses, NOWSA 2017 provides opportunities for attendees to hold workshops. Workshops are to be no longer than 50 minutes, and are intended to be skill-sharing between attendees.

This application form does not guarantee your space to hold a workshop: time-table restrictions and overlapping of topics are reasons for a workshop not being run. For this reason, please provide as much detail and specifics into your application as possible.

**The deadline for Workshop Applications is June 30th.**

Some examples of workshops include a beginner workshop titles “Feminism 101: What’s the patriarchy?”, while an intermediate workshop should build on base knowledge of attendees, and could be titled “Class Barriers in Feminism”. An advanced workshop may be your PhD work, or a more in depth analysis of a research topic, such as “Feminist Methodologies and Research Methods”.

We will also be holding a workshop training session on the Sunday afternoon before NOWSA begins. Please click here for a document produced by the NOWSA 2017 Organising Committee on how to run a safe and accessible workshop.

You will find out if your Workshop Application is successful on June 16th.

One thought on “Workshop Applications

  1. thank you for presenting impressive keynote speakers. i have been searching for times that they are on so i can know if it fits into my daily routines.
    no times seem obvious to me.a program of each day would be very beneficial. i apologise if you have this already and i simply have not found it.
    many thanks for your reply
    sundra grace
