European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG)
For the first time ever, the European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG) is scheduled to be held in South-Eastern Europe at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia from 7–9 July 2021.
While we are actively preparing for a physical ECPG in Ljubljana, we also appreciate that the world is still facing much uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, should it be no longer feasible or safe for us to organise a face-to-face event, we are planning to adopt a hybrid, or fully virtual format. We are committed to ensuring that, regardless of the circumstances, the ECPG 2021 still takes place, in a safe setting.
About the Conference
As Europe’s biggest gathering of politics and gender scholars, the ECPG provides a platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and best practices in the discipline. The conference aims to cover the full range of topics in the field of politics and gender broadly conceived to include any gender, sexuality and intersectional perspectives in political science, international relations, political theory and philosophy, research methods, public policy and public administration, and social movements. It aims to attract scholars globally, and at all stages of their career. The ECPG particularly welcomes participation of early career scholars and scholars who are underrepresented in the profession
The Academic Programme will consist of Lectures, Roundtables and Themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. The Programme will be very comprehensive with Sections covering all the main areas of the study of politics and gender in a broad sense, as well as Sections focussing on emerging research areas. In order to make the organization of the ECPG even more inclusive, we open a call for Section proposals.
Stage 2 Call for Panels (with Papers) and individual Papers
The second stage of the process is open to anyone wishing to propose a complete Panel with Papers, and those wanting to propose individual Papers to a particular Section. Panels provisionally proposed as part of accepted Sections must also be submitted through this procedure. Panels should include 4-5 Papers. Panel proposers do not need to belong to an ECPR member institution, but they must have a MyECPR profile.
The deadline to submit complete Panels (with Papers) and individual Paper proposals is 8 December 2020 (midnight UK time).
