Call for Papers: 10th European Feminist Research Conference, 12-15 September 2018, Goettingen
The 10th European Feminist Research Conference (EFRC) now invites abstract submissions for papers and posters. The 10th EFRC is a joint endeavour of AtGender (The European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation), FG Gender (German Gender Studies Association) and the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen.
The overall theme of the conference is “Difference, Diversity, Diffraction: Confronting Hegemonies and Dispossessions”, which refers to a topic central to Gender Studies: the social construction of difference and inequality on the one hand, and the recognition of marginalised experiences and subject positions on the other. In the face of growing right-wing populist movements, anti-feminist and anti-queer backlash, forced migration, austerity and climate change, these concerns take on renewed relevance. The subtitle ‘Confronting Hegemonies and Dispossessions’ is a call to reflect on, challenge and defy the hierarchies, subjugations and deprivations that are linked to structural differentiations and to find affirmative ways of dealing with diversity, difference and diffraction. The conference is committed to promoting a feminist anti-racist accessible space for all genders.
Further information and the call for papers can be found at the conference website.
The 10th European Feminist Research Conference is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the project financing code 01FP1719.
