Setting a New Agenda for the Equality Policies
25-27 June 2014, Barcelona, Spain
ATGENDER has established a tradition of organizing Spring Conferences dedicated to research and teaching/learning in Women’s, Gender and Feminist Studies, but also to activism, policy making, and dissemination of information. Following the successful ATGENDER conferences in Brussels (2010), Utrecht (2011), Budapest (2012), and Gothenburg (2013), the next conference is hosted by Barcelona Provincial Council in the Francesca Bonnemaison Centre, Spain.
ATGENDER – committed to fostering an interchangeability of its Spring Conferences’ topics which are respectively research, teaching/learning, and activism/policy making – dedicates this year Spring Conference to:
- gender equality and policy making
- crossroads and intersections of feminist activism and equality polices
- establishing connections between equality agents, feminist activists, information specialists and those involved in academic gender studies
The conference is meant to gather ATGENDER and non-ATGENDER members interested in the interaction and exchange between gender studies research, teaching, and gender equality. Keynote speakers include Alison Woodward from Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Mieke Verloo from Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen.
We welcome different topics and different formats to reflect, discuss, evaluate and present results. Deadline for submission of proposals : 17 March 2014. Full call for contributions.
