Transitions and Transformations in Gender Equality


With the conference theme "Transitions and Transformations in Gender Equality" for the 25th IAFFE Annual Conference in 2016, IAFFE invites scholars and activists of feminist inquiry to reflect on "movements" in gender equality in the broadest sense of the term. The theme opens iteself up to both theoretical and political advances in feminist thinking and practice, expanding the concept of intersectionality to capture transitions and transformations as well as tensions and challenges across socio-economics regimes, generations, institutions and borders. For instance, today feminist studies of intersectionality are compelled to account for the unprecedented challenges of cross-border movements due to war, arising from economic crises and climate change, of fundamental shifts in labour markets and welfare systems on care/social reproduction. Papers or roundtables may also address the intellectual contributions and transformation of IAFFE and the way IAFFE has been shaped by increasingly interdependent global relations. Panel proposals and individual paper submissions related to any aspect of feminist inquiry into economic issues are invited. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

Submissions: Abstracts must be submitted online via the IAFFE website beginning in January 2016. Submissions can be made for roundtables, panels or individual papers. Participants are limited to one paper presentation and one roundtable or appearance on a panel. Additional co-authored papers are allowed only if they are presented by the co-author. These limitations will allow maximum participation by all members wishing to participate.

Deadline for Submission: The deadline for submissions is April 4, 2016. Notification of acceptance will begin on March 15, 2016.

Conference Registration will open in mid-January 2016
