    The conference looks amazing. I’m very impressed by the press it received. But why are the keynote speakers all Cis-male? In fact, this whole conference seems rather male-dominated. Just my observation (but noting that I didn’t attend).

    • beescherer says:

      Presenters: 8 female (incl 1 trans); 9 male
      Keynoters: 3 cis male, 1 trans female/non-binary incl. the primary organisers
      Choice of the two non-organising keynoters: necessitated by the focus of the conference for LGBT rights debates and awareness change in the Caribbean/Cayman addressing a conservative legal (Zaffaroni) and Christian (Wilson) environment: i.e. queer pragmatics.
      BTW QP6 had all female keynoters.
      Where good things are still happening in generally hostile neo-liberal academic contexts we should celebrate them.
      How about joining us again soon and getting involved? ❤
