FW: FWSA Biennal Conference 2017 - Call for papers is now open

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:


We look forward to welcoming you in Glasgow.
