Institut des Amériques - Aix-en-Provence (France)

The 11th Institut des Amériques Conference Call for papers interrogates the theme of "Women in the Americas." A generation of scholars in the humanities and social sciences have paid considerable attention to gender- and women-related issues. This more comprehensive framework, constructing North/South and transamericanist paradigms, ambitions to revisit such topics from interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives. Beyond traditional oppositions and stereotypes, we invite contributions which question permanence and change in the role and status of women in the Americas.

Conference languages are English, French and Spanish.
