The Politics of Location Revisited: Gender@2012 8th European Feminist Research Conference May 17 – 20, 2012 │ Budapest, Hungary
The Student’s Day within the 8th European Feminist Research Conference is organized by the Central European University, Department of Gender Studies and AtGender, the European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation. European Feminist Research Conferences usually have more than 500 participants from both inside and outside of Europe. The Student’s Day provides space for 150 students to participate in the various activities that take place during this event. A limited number of student grants will be offered, which will cover accommodation, travel and the conference fee.
The Student’s Day will be held on Sunday, May 20,2012 as part of the 8th European Feminist Research Conference, which takes place during May 17 – 20, 2012.
Activities of the Student’s Day will be organized around three events.
1) Keynote lecture (to be announced).
2) Career Workshops: Innovative training framework for sharing experiences in academia and life after graduation. The student’s day offers a mixture of different workshops aimed to facilitate cross generational and cross institutional collaboration that transgress traditional intellectual boundaries, providing dialogues about how to develop dynamic projects in research and working life. Topics of the workshops will include publishing, geographies of education, gender and activism, and coping with research dilemmas.
3) Paper workshops with keynote speaker(s) and gender experts/professors in which students can discuss their papers (to be submitted before the conference). These workshops provide an intellectually inspiring forum for constructive dialogues around ongoing research projects in small groups in an informal setting together with gender scholars and peer students.
