Welcoming Research to the SMF Symposium

The SMF Symposium has been a staple of the SMF Department and Community for a growing number of years. Each year, this is an opportunity for students, faculty and community members to present their research in topics related to and intersecting with Sexualities, Relationships, Families with an overarching vision of social justice and anti-oppression.

We’ve made an effort to ensure that both presenters and attendees of this conference have been able to both educate and learn from the research presented at this annual event; This year’s the SMF Symposium Planning Committee has made the decision to better reflect this in our event’s name by welcoming the title SMF Research Symposium to our ever-growing event.

This conference is an opportunity for all in our community to learn from others and share their own research- both roles play an integral part to making sure this research moves and changes our work (and world) for the better!

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, watch here for the Call for Proposals coming soon!
