GES 2012: 'The fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality'
The aim of this symposium is to contribute to the academically informed discussion on gender within Anglophone and Celtic linguistics and literature as well as culture studies. To explore gender issues from a variety of perspectives, we plan to organize plenary lectures and themed sessions on the topics of the fluidity and contestability of gender and sexuality. The point of departure for the conference is the assumption that gender-related processes take place in context (spatio-temporal, social, cultural and political etc.) and need to be investigated as such.
