Call for proposals

The Call for Proposals is now closed (Nov. 15, 2022). 

The Moving Trans History Forward conferences are not just for scholars, or just for community people. MTHF conferences provide a unique blend of opportunities for cross-fertilization among members of general public; students and faculty; artists; activists; Trans+ people; family members; allies; and service providers. Conferences consider our history, the crucial issues which impact us today, and into the future—locally, nationally, and globally.

The next conference, once again presented by the Chair in Transgender Studies, will be hybrid, taking place both in person at the University of Victoria and online March 30th – April 2nd, 2023 (#MTHF23).

We invite you to submit proposals for individual or panel presentations, workshops, and creative works to present online or in person. Submissions from all perspectives and disciplines, and pertaining to all regions of the world, are welcome. We invite proposals for new or recently released materials. Please ensure that your proposal is written in plain English so that it can be understood by people who are not experts in your topic.
