GEXcel Theme 2 Conference – Call for participation
By Katherine Harrison on 06 Mar | 0 comments
Supported by a grant from the Swedish Research Council, Linköping University and Örebro University launched a 5 year project to establish a European Centre of Gender Excellence based in Sweden--Gendering Excellence (GEXcel): Towards a European Centre of Excellence in Transnational and Transdisciplinary Studies of Changing Gender Relations, Intersectionalities and Embodiment, directed by Nina Lykke. In 2008-09, one research theme of GEXcel is “Deconstructing the Hegemony of Men and Masculinities,” directed by Jeff Hearn, Professor of Gender Studies, Linköping University. See full description of the Theme.
Sub-themes for this conference are:
• Embodiment: The body, ageing, older men, disability.
• Virtuality: Current and future impacts of information and communication technologies.
• Transnationalisation: Multiple aspects of globalisation and transnationalisation, such as multinational corporations, international finance and migration.
Each of these raises complex questions and contradictions for current critical theorising on men and masculinities.
Attendee registration is now open for this conference. Please register to attend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 13 April 2009.
Provisional speakers include: Christine Beasley (University of Adelaide, Australia), David Bell (University of Leeds, UK), Marina Blagojevic (Altera MB, Budapest, Hungary), Toni Calasanti (Virginia Tech, US), Fataneh Farahani (Linköping University, Sweden), Karen Gabriel (Centre for Women's Development Studies, New Delhi, India), Brendan Gough (Nottingham Trent University), Miklós Hadas (University of Budapest), Jeff Hearn (Linköping University, Sweden), Richard Howson (Wollongong University), David Jackson (Nottingham), Katarzyna Kosmala (University of West of Scotland), Marie Nordberg (Karlstad University, Sweden), Irene Ryan (Auckland University of Technology), Gurchathen Sangera Singh (University of St Andrews, Scotland), Niels Ulrik Sørensen (Aarhus University, Denmark), Suruchi Thapar-Björkert (Bristol University), Jutta Weber (University of Uppsala, Sweden).
Format: This conference will begin on Monday afternoon (27 April 2009) with keynote addresses. Tuesday and Wednesday (28-29 April 2009) will be based on a small-scale conference format, along with some workshop meetings (on each of the four sub-themes), and a final plenary panel on 29 April.
Workshops are designed to be a forum for discussion of research in progress related to the conference sub-themes and to facilitate collaboration among junior and senior scholars. Each sub-theme workshop will have about 10-12 participants.
Each sub-theme will be assigned a coordinator, whose tasks will include summarising research and discussion themes and presenting these summaries at the closing plenary. We expect the conference and workshops to lead to publications, as well as to continued collaboration between members.
Costs: Meals and hospitality will be provided by GEXcel. Costs for accommodation and travel will normally be paid by participants. Very exceptionally, some contribution may be made.
