I just would like to draw your attention to the FWSA 2017 conference which Strathclyde University will be hosting.
The FWSA 2017 conference has the following theme: Making space for feminism in the neo-liberal academy and we would like to invite researchers – academic or otherwise – to submit proposals on the following or similar topics:
- Feminist pedagogies, potentials and problems
- The academic precariat: early-mid-established career trajectories
- Gender, race and class in the academic labour market: getting in and staying in?
- Academic freedom and failures in neoliberal times
- Education, activism and policy futures
- Educational (im)mobilities
- Emotional existences into and out of academia
- Transnational alliances, praxis and coalitions
- Feminism and information literacy
- Feminist digital technologies in education and/for civic engagement
Further details about the conference call for proposals can be found here: http://fwsablog.org.uk/conferences-and-events/fwsa-biennial-conference-2017/
We look forward to welcoming you in Glasgow.
