By ulrica on 18 Feb | 0 comments
Location: Linköping University 25-27 May 2011
Following the successful “Men and Masculinities Moving On” 2009 Conference, GEXcel’s current Theme “Gendered Sexualed Transnationalisations, Deconstructing the Dominant: Transforming Men, “Centres” and Knowledge/Policy/Practice” invites scholars, at all career stages, to apply for a workshop conference in May 2011.
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 2011, one research theme of GEXcel is “Gendered Sexualed Transnationalisations, Deconstructing the Dominant: Transforming Men, “Centres” and Knowledge/Policy/Practice,” directed by Jeff Hearn, Linköping University. See a full description of the Theme http://www.genderexcel.org/?q=node/211.
We invite applications for the conference from scholars at all career stages whose research addresses one of the following sub-themes:
MOVEMENTS and FLOWS: migration, social movements, transnational sociality, spatiality, transport, travel, tourism, energy, the environment.
TECHNOLOGIES and VIRTUALITIES: current and future impacts of multi- mediation, cyberspace, information and communication technologies, and other
INSTITUTIONS and ORGANISATIONS: institutional aspects of globalisation and transnationalisation, transnational organisations, supranational governance, multinational corporations, international finance, militarism, sex trade, organised crime, transnational work-life relations. Each of these raises complex questions and contradictions for current critical theorising on men and masculinities. Papers are also invited more generally on the sub-theme:
THEORISING and DOING METHODOLOGY: theories and methodologies, power, dominance, hegemony, deconstruction, centres and peripheries, relations of knowledge/policy/practice.
Provisional speakers include: Sofia Aboim (University of Lisbon, Portugal), Chris Beasley (University of Adelaide, Australia), Sırma Bilge (University of Montreal, Canada), Marina Blagojević (Altera MB, Budapest, Hungary), Tetyana Bureychak (National University of Lviv, Ukraine), Richard Collier (Newcastle University,UK), Manisha Desai (University of Connecticut, USA), Fataneh Farahani (Stockholm University, Sweden), Karen Gabriel (Centre for Women’s Development Studies, Delhi University, India), Tonya Haynes (University of the West Indies, Barbados), Jeff Hearn (Linköping University, Sweden), Richard Howson (Wollongong University, Australia), Helen Longlands (Institute of Education, London, UK), Nil Mutluer (Central European University, Hungary; and Fatih University, Istanbul, Turkey), Marie Nordberg (Karlstad University, Sweden), Winifred Poster (Washington University, St Louis, USA), Ernesto Vasquez del Augila (University College Dublin, Ireland), PK Vijayan (Institute of Social Science, The Hague, Netherlands; and Delhi University, India).
Format: This conference will begin on Wednesday afternoon (25 May 2011) with
keynote addresses. Thursday and Friday (26-27 May 2011) 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 27 May. Workshops are designed to be a forum
for discussion of research in progress related to the conference sub-themes and to facilitate collaboration among scholars at all career stages. Each sub-theme workshop will have about 10-12 participants, with short pre/circulated papers from presenters. 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 tocontinued 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.
Application Requirements: Send an Abstract of Proposed Paper of up to 250 words
demonstrating how research connects to one of the sub-themes. Please also include a
Brief Biographical Note of up to 150 words outlining your current research interests,
most recent publications, academic affiliation and status, and full contact details.
