seeks abstracts for the forthcoming

 

Global Conference on Women and Gender

to be held at CNU, March 19-21, 2020

 

We are pleased to announce that the theme for this year’s conference is:

Gender, Politics, and Everyday Life: Power, Resistance and Representation

This interdisciplinary conference brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations on gender and politics around the world. While formal politics loom large in 2020, we encourage an expansive understanding of political action and expression, inspired by Carol Hanisch’s essay, “The Personal is Political,” which sees all relationships of power as political and connects women’s experiences, self-expression, and values to their lives as political actors and subjects.

Topics may include but are not limited to the past and/or present intersection of gender and politics in:

Suffrage Expansion
Feminism
Voting and Candidacy
Organizing and Activism
Media Representation
Artistic and Literary Expression
Motherhood and Family Life
Sexuality and Gender Identity
Reproductive Rights
Race and Racism
Disability Rights

Employment
Poverty
Education
Health
Violence
Religion
Law
Business and Management
Leadership
Social Media
 

Submissions from any academic discipline are welcome, including but not limited to art, history, philosophy, religious studies, sociology, psychology, environmental science, medicine, biomedical ethics, economics, political science, gender studies, communication studies and literature. We also invite professionals in nonacademic settings to submit proposals.
 
Both panel and individual paper proposals are welcome.
