The Politics of Location Revisited: Gender@2012
8th European Feminist Research Conference
May 17 – 20, 2012 │ Budapest, Hungary
CALL FOR PAPERS
Deadline for proposals: September 15, 2011
The 8th European Feminist Research Conference invites scholars, students, activists and policy makers to submit papers related to the topics of “Gendered Memories of War and Political Violence” and “Girlhood in Popular Culture”.
The Conference is organized by the Central European University, Department of Gender Studies and AtGender, the European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation. The European Feminist Research Conferences usually have more than 500 participants from both inside and outside Europe. The Conferences have a track record of presenting innovative feminist scholarly work with critical perspectives on contemporary Europe and its histories.
The 8th European Feminist Research Conference welcomes papers that keep in focus the connections among a number of relevant axes that frame current researches in the field. We have in mind connections between disciplines and interdisciplinarity; the past, the present and the future; gender and intersectionality; activism and power; local and global; margin and center. The strands listed below indicate the main lines of inquiry around which the Conference will be structured.
Participants must indicate the strand their paper addresses; it is also possible to indicate a second strand that will be addressed in their contribution. Based on these indications the Conference Board will create intersecting panels across different strands.
Abstracts should have not more than 300 words and can only be uploaded at http://www.8thfeministconference.org/
Deadline for abstract submission is September 15, 2011.
The conference fees and other relevant information can be found here.
