October 23 to 27
Havana city, Cuba
The third edition of the International Lecture Series in Havana, Cuba will offer practitioners, educators, activists an opportunity to share their scholarship, clinical best practice, and pedagogy as it relates to how their work reflects their personal vision and/or desire. Audre Lorde offered “Our visions begin with our desires” and it seems advantageous to have professionally intimate dialogue about the rationale and implications of how we seek to advance our communities.
Last year in Prague, Czech Republic, we used the lecture series to generate new ideas about masculinity, colorism, intimate partner violence, navigation of white privilege, and adolescent development. This year, we want to continue those discussions and including a component that addresses how our work may be a natural extension of who we are or how our visions and expectations are manifestations of what we yearn for.
We seek proposals that explore the possibility and probability of developing solutions about the challenges of intersectionality, issues that affect Black LGBTQAI, gender and reproductive politics, fantasy/desire and kink, media influences, relationship constellations, sexuality education, function/dysfunction, mental health practice, sociocultural factors, and the confluence of race, gender, and sexuality. Proposal submissions should reflect the theme of the conference.
Traditional Scholarly Presentation
Presentations will be 30 minutes in length. While Powerpoint slides are encouraged, presenters may use handouts in order to facilitate dialogue for the presentation.
Dialogue Panel Presentation
The 45-minute dialogue panel presentations will be comprised of three or four panelists. These briefs will be followed by a facilitated dialogue between panelists and the audience to further explore the connections between the ideas presented in the briefs or explore possible outcomes. The goal of the panel presentations is to create a respectful, engaging environment to assess complementary and divergent perspectives.
