The Global Conference on Women and Gender - Gender, Politics, and Everyday Life: Power, Resistance, and Representation
We have reserved the same theme from our postponed 2020 conference: Gender, Politics and Everyday Life: Power, Resistance and Representation.
This interdisciplinary conference brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations on gender and politics around the world. While formal politics loom large in 2020, we encourage an expansive understanding of political action and expression, inspired by Carol Hanisch’s essay, “The Personal is Political,” which sees all relationships of power as political and connects women’s experiences, self-expression, and values to their lives as political actors and subjects.
Topics may include but are not limited to the past and/or present intersection of gender and politics in:
- Suffrage expansion
- Voting and candidacy
- Organizing and activism
- Media representation
- Artistic and literary expression
- Motherhood and family life
- Sexuality and gender identity
- Reproductive rights
- Race and racism
- Disability rights
- Business and management
