ABOUT THE EVENT

Once every three years ATGENDER organises a conference in the spring or in September with a focus on the role of Gender Studies expertise in activism and professional employment, like NGOs, nonprofit and profit organisations. [2020 London – Caring in Uncaring Times; 2017 Vilnius Bridging Gender Research and Policy Making; 2014: Barcelona – A New Agenda For Gender Equality Policies]. The 2024 edition will be held at Utrecht University on September 27-29 and is dedicated to:

Gender Studies and the Precarious Labour of Making a Difference: (Un)paid Jobs, Internships, and Volunteering in the Worlds of Activism, Profit, and Non-profit.

Doing gender-related work and producing feminist knowledge takes place across many contexts, both within and outside academia. Join us in exploring how the precarious labour (paid and unpaid) of Gender Studies experts (students, early career graduates, volunteers, professionals, teachers, researchers) makes a difference in activism, in institutions, and in social reproduction. Please find below the description of six exciting streams for the themes and perspectives that we imagine. Do not hesitate to propose alternative topics. Please note that this conference differs from the three-yearly European Research Conferences that ATGENDER organises.

  • This conference is dedicated to social and political engagement of gender studies. We especially invite papers based on or reporting about transdisciplinary research and projects that involve (feminist) participatory action research, co-creation, community based research.
  • We feel that today, after the pandemic and in times of war and ecological disasters,  encounters in the field of feminist & gender studies often suffer from exhaustion, disenchantment and expected binaries. We also know that many scholars and activists in gender and feminism explore creative ways to continue or re-invent ways to connect in inclusive conversations, drawing on alternative forms of sharing and exchanging knowledge.  We especially welcome papers or roundtables that aim to contribute to this re-invention of communication beyond polarised binaries.
