International Conference on Women’s Studies

27-28.09. 2014.

Conference venue: tbc

 

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), short bios (up to 100 words), and email contact should be sent to Dr Martina Topić (martina@socialsciencesandhumanities.com) by 15th August 2014.

Decisions will be made by 20th August 2014, and payment of the conference fee has to be made by 30th August 2014.

Panel proposals should be sent by 15th July 2014.

Finalised Conference programme will be available by 15th September 2014. Early decisions are available for participants with EU visa requirements, and for panel proposals.

Participants should indicate in their applications whether they would like to chair one of the existing panels (if not proposing their own panel) and whether they plan to submit a paper for publication.

The Centre plans to establish a peer review journal, as well as publish working papers and edited volumes. Conference papers will be considered for publication.

We welcome paper proposals from scholars, NGO activists, Master and PhD students, and independent researchers.

Certificate of attendance

 

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.

 

The Centre will not discriminate based on the origin and/or methodological/paradigmatic approach of prospective conference participants.
