Invitation: Gender & Transformation: Women in Postsocialism

The Gender and Transition Workshop at the NYU Center for European and Mediterranean Studies invites speakers to submit proposals for talks for the academic year 2008-2009.



The topic can be about any issue on gender in relation to East and Central Europe and
the former Soviet Union, including the Baltic countries and Central
Asia. It should not be a general topic, but cover some specific area
of research, activism, or expertise, for example (but not excluding
related topics) on gender and NGOs in the region, on gender policy in
the region, on feminist political theory and the region, on current
political and economic developments and the region, etc.

We CANNOT cover transportation expenses to New York City, so
the speaker should be someone who is or expects to be in the New York
area. We can, however, offer an honorarium for the talk.

All proposals are welcome, both from women from the region
and experts from the U.S. or elsewhere. We invite activists as well
as scholars and researchers.

The workshop is a small, informal, and friendly group of
about 20 feminist scholars, activists, and journalists that has been
meeting for almost 15 years. We have general background information,
so general talks are not relevant for this group.

If you would like to present a talk for this workshop, please
e-mail the workshop moderators: Sonia Jaffe Robbins,; Nanette Funk,; and Janet
