Feminist and Women's Studies Association (UK & Ireland) 19th Annual Conference

July 14-15th, 2006

University of Bradford, UK

 

The focus of the Conference will be on making links between theory and action, academics and activists. Conference themes will be interdisciplinary, and reflect both United Kingdom and International diversities. Streams include but do not restrict papers to identity, sexuality, diversity and:

* Social care
* European studies
* Race, ethnicity,
* Disability and ability
* Heterosexuality, sexuality, identity
* Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transsexual identity
* Criminal Justice

We are interested in abstracts that investigate and represent the human kaleidoscope of 'difference'. Issues such as sexuality, ethnicity, disability and the multiples of diversity impact on identity or identities. Our aim is to explore ways in which people perceive and negotiate boundaries, whether these are seen to be social, cultural, national, ethnic or gender-based. Our approach embraces feminism in all its many aspects.

The Feminist and Women's Studies Association (UK + Ireland) has a long history of bringing together feminist action and feminist research. The Department of Social Studies and Humanities has particular strengths in developing links between theory and practice in the areas of social care, women's studies, social policy and criminal justice. The University of Bradford has close links with the diverse communities of Bradford, and has developed widening participation and equal access policies that reflect our commitment to representation and equality. The conference will reflect our commitment to joint working and rethinking traditional boundaries between 'town and gown'-theoretical and practical.

 

Abstracts of no more than 150 words should be sent to c.beckett_at_bradford.ac.uk by 20th January 2006 or to Valerie Bentley, Social Science and Humanities, University of Bradford, Bradford, BD7 1DP.
