2018 European Feminist Research Conference

12.09.2018 - 15.09.2018
Göttingen (Detuschland)

The CfP of the 2018 European Feminist Research Conference is now out! Organised by ATGENDER together with FG Gender and Göttingen University, it will take place on September 12-15 in Göttingen, DE. Its theme will be Difference, Diversity, Diffraction: Confronting Hegemonies and Dispossessions. We welcome proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations and panels, as part of one of the 11 streams. Additionally, events in the Open Forum format (workshops, working group meetings, book presentations etc.) are also invited. Please, submit your proposal through the online system before February 12, 2018.

We remind you that conference will be free of charge, thanks to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research which will sponsor the event. At the same time, we ask for your support in order to make the work of ATGENDER possible and to allow us to provide grants for those who cannot afford the travel costs to attend the conference. Therefore, your 2018 membership is important! Click here to renew it, and here to register as new member.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the Göttingen conference, with its great programme, keynote speakers and social activities (much more will come!).
