RATIONALE

 

It has been a long time ago since feminists started to debate women’s rights, and different treatment women receive in societies, politics and working markets. Even though feminist voices are still loud, and feminists still warn about inferior position of women in comparison to men in all aspects of life, have we reached true equality? Statistics and events forming daily consumption of the international media show we have not reached an ultimate goal of equality, and yet certain movements are claiming that feminists are too loud and that men’s rights need to be protected due to the enormous influence of ‘women’s lobby’. Have we truly reached equality, and are feminists jeopardizing the rights of men?These and other issues are subjects of our conference.

 

Papers are invited (but not limited to) for the following panels:

Women and labour

Women and discrimination

Women and sexual violence

Women and religion

Women in the media

Women and politics

Women and sexuality

Theory and methodology in women’s studies

Women: East vs West

Women and reproductive rights

Women and education

Women and leadership

Movement for men’s rights

 

Prospective participants are also welcome to submit proposals for their own panels.

Submissions of abstracts (up to 500 words) with an email contact should be sent to Dr Martina Topić (martina@socialsciencesandhumanities.com) by 10 August 2015.

 

The Centre established a peer review journal, and a working paper series. Conference papers will be considered.

 

We welcome paper proposals from scholars, NGO activists, Master and PhD students, and independent researchers. Earlier decisions will be available when we collect enough papers for each panel.

Certificate of attendance

 

Centre for Research in Humanities and Social Sciences is a private institution founded in December 2013 in Croatia (EU).

We selected Austria as a place for hosting conferences due to Austria’s favourable geographic position, and liberal Visa regime for conference participants with EU Visa requirements.

 

Unfortunately, the Centre has no available funds for covering transport and accommodation in Austria. Participants are responsible for finding funding to cover transportation and accommodation costs during the whole period of the conference.

 

This applies to both presenting and non-presenting participants. The Centre will not discriminate based on the origin and/or methodological/paradigmatic approach of prospective conference participants.

 

The Centre is eligible for providing Visa letter for Austria to non-EU conference participants, and we are pleased to emphasise that all Visa applications in 2014 were successful.
