Spaces of Feminist Learning and Teaching: queering movements, translations and dynamics.
ATGENDER Spring Conference, 21-23 April 2016, Utrecht.
ATGENDER Spring conference is dedicated to spaces of feminist learning & teaching.
The focus of the conference is on teaching and learning in queer and gender studies’ classrooms, broadly understood as spaces inside and outside the university, traversed by multiple urgencies and agendas and informed by complex negotiations at personal, social, economic and political levels.
ATGENDER aims to strengthen sustainable networks within European Gender Studies, therefore experts in gender information, archiving and documentation are explicitly invited to consider a contribution to one of the themes.
The conference wants to stimulate active and reciprocal exchanges between researchers, activists, students, educators, graduates and those professionally engaged with gender studies and feminist research. We want to address issues related to learning and teaching of gender in many possible contexts. We invite those interested in feminist debates and practices of teaching gender in and beyond Europe to join us in a series of exciting panels, workshops and other events. The conference experience will be deepened by free training sessions, a wild social programme, and creative mind/body activities in the city of Utrecht.
If interested, please submit your proposal (in one file) by February 7th here. Format of proposal:
- A title and abstract (350 words max)
- An autobiographical blurb (75 word max)
- A three-item bibliography
When submitting please specify in which of the following themes you envision your contribution.
At this moment 10 grants (travel + registration) are made available by ATGENDER: for students or unemployed recent graduates, who are ATGENDER-members and who contribute to one of the themes. ATGENDER and the conference organizers are looking for ways to expand the number of grants.
