We invite speakers to submit proposals for our Friday afternoon talks for Spring 2013. The  meetings are from 4:30-6:00 PM at the NYU Center for European Studies in Manhattan in Greenwich Village.

 

We focus 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 and where possible, in the context of the broader issues and transformations.

 

The topic can be any issue on gender or sexuality in relation to your country. Your proposal should cover some specific area of empirical or theoretical gender research, activism, or expertise, for example (but not excluding other topics):  women’s activism; gender and NGOs and/or transnational alliances, whether “east/east” or otherwise ; gender policy; gender in relation to current political and economic developments and crises; feminist political theory or historical debates in your country in relation to gender and current developments in the region; interaction with European Level networks such as the European Women’s Lobby; the EU, UN and issues of gender, sexuality or women’s rights; gender and justice, legitimacy and/or democratization in relation to developments in the region; gender and immigration; gender and right wing developments in your country.

 

We welcome approaches from gender studies, political theory, history, political science, anthropology, sociology and interdisciplinary approaches. This is the perfect space to present  theoretical, conceptual, historical and recent field research or scholarly reflections on your activism.

 

The workshop is a small, informal, and friendly group of about 20 feminist scholars, activists, and journalists that has been meeting for more than 15 years. The members are knowledgeable about the region. We have general background information, so general talks are not relevant for this group. We offer an honorarium; however, we regret that we cannot cover transportation expenses to New York City.
