The keynote speaker is Stella Nyanzi, PhD, with the Makerere Institute of Social Research at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Her current research is focused on the politicization of sexuality in contemporary Uganda – with an emphasis particularly on unpacking mainstream religious framing of and contestations about sexual citizenship. Dr. Nyanzi is also conducting research about the vulnerability and resilience of young refugee and displaced women in Uganda towards HIV/AIDS. She is a featured author in the book, African Sexualities, which features many scholars from Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • Special Deal through January 31: Students $40 | Non-students $75.
  • Early Bird February 1-March 20: Students $50 | Non-students $100.
