Twentieth Anniversary of the Founding of the Network East-West Women CALL FOR SPEAKERS

2011-07-11 16:16:21 / News read 2751 reading

The GENDER and TRANSFORMATION in EUROPE Workshop invites speakers to submit proposals for Friday afternoon talks for Fall 2011 at the NYU Center for European and Mediterranean Studies.

 

We are looking for speakers to discuss gender, sexuality, or women in Europe or Eurasia, especially talks that consider the impact of broader cultural, political, or economic transformations.  Historically, we have focused on the postcommunist countries of East and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union, including the Baltic countries and Central Asia, but we are also interested in explorations of gender in Western Europe or comparisons with gender in other parts of the world.

The workshop is an informal and friendly group of about 20 feminist scholars, activists, and journalists who have been meeting for more than 15 years and are knowledgeable about the region. This is the perfect space to present recent field research or scholarly reflections on your activism  

We offer an honorarium; however, we regret that we cannot cover transportation expenses to New York City. For more information--and details about how to propose a talk--see
