IN/EQUALITIES narrative & critique, resistance & solidarity

Call for papers

Graduate Conference in Gender Studies
Central European University, Budapest
May 3-5, 2018

Extended Deadline: January 12, 2018

“Inequality” and “equality” have become central concepts in a wide range of domains engaged with struggles against injustice, from the structures of social movements, political and policy discourses, to activist practices, artistic productions, and academic inquiry, particularly in Gender Studies. With this conference we aim to examine the cultural and political infrastructures and productions that underpin, enable, deploy, or contest ‘official’ discourses of equality in policy or legislative frameworks. In a context in which discourses of equality are often embedded in and supportive of projects of nationalism and quite sympathetic to neoliberal infrastructures of value, precarization and normalization, it is critical to investigate possibilities of addressing persisting injustices, and the varied forms such an address might take.

The deadline for abstract submissions is January 5, 2018. Please send the title and abstract (300 words) to, including a short biographical statement (100 words) of the presenter, institutional affiliation, and any technical assistance required. Applicants will receive a response regarding their submission by February 1, 2018.
