7th European Feminist Research Conference
The 7th European Feminist Research Conference is an international event based on cutting-edge scholarship. The conference reflects the diversity of women’s and gender studies, incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives on imagination, knowledge and politics. The focus is on the way in which imagination, knowledge and politics inform gendered cultures in contemporary Europe.
European Feminist Research Conferences usually have more than 500 participants from both inside and outside of Europe. The Conference has a track record of presenting innovative feminist scholarly work with critical perspectives on contemporary Europe.
The 7th edition of the European Feminist Research Conference will be interdisciplinary in several ways. Firstly, it will employ the Utrecht expertise of crossing the boundaries of the scholarly and the artistic through a focus on, and a review of, literary, visual and artistic representations. Secondly, it will work with a matrix of intersecting themes rather than with singular conference strands. Thus participating scholars, students and artists are asked to situate themselves in this crosscutting matrix.
Submission of abstracts and registration: Abstracts should have not more than 300 words and should be in English. Abstracts and can only be submitted (uploaded) once you have registered yourself at this page.
