4th Global Conference: Femininities and Masculinities
Friday 2nd May – Sunday 4th May 2014
Call For Presentations:
Gender studies is an interdisciplinary field of academic study on the issues of gender in its social and cultural contexts. Since its emergence from feminism, gender studies have become one of the most deliberated disciplines. The following project aims at an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and perspectives on the issues of femininities and masculinities in the 21st century. It invites ground-breaking research on a plethora of topics connected with gender, to propose an interdisciplinary view of the frontiers and to stake out new territories in the study of femininities and masculinities.
Papers, presentations, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on issues related to any of the following themes:
1. Representations of Femininities and Masculinities
2. Gender Borders and Transgressions
3. New Directions in Feminisms and Masculinity Studies
4. Global and Regional Perspectives on Gender
5. Investigating the diffusion of feminism and feminist theory in non-West contexts
6. Gender in Relationships
7. Gender in Experience
We welcome not only academic research presentations, but also case studies and creative proposals (creative writing, drama, visual art, performance, etc.)
In order to support and encourage interdisciplinarity engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between two and possibly all three groups – and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between evil, women, femininity and/or violence and/or femininities and masculinities.
What to Send:
a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract, f) up to 10 keywords.
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline).

The conference is part of the At the Interface programme of research projects. It aims to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting.
