Keynote speakers: Judith Butler, Capitolina Diaz, Lídia Puigvert, Myria Vassiliadou, Gaby Weiner
The conference will draw together outstanding international speakers and researchers as well as activists engaged in gender and education. We encourage submissions that address conceptual, methodological, and practical challenges and opportunities in research and practice, from a diversity of voices on gender and education. The aims of the conference are:
- To review the cutting edge feminist and gender theory research and learn current research trends
- To provide an environment for participants to dialog and share their concerns and claims on gender and education issues
- To create a learning space to network and strengthen collaborations
The Interim Conference 2010: Gender and Education. Diversity of Voices is organised by SAFO CREA Women’s group (CREA-UB is the Centre of research in Theories and Practices that overcome Inequalities at the University of Barcelona) with the support of the Gender and Education Association.
Our hope is that the submissions for the 2010 Interim Conference will stimulate new conversations and collaborations that broaden our understandings of gender and education, making it possible to use that knowledge to create learning opportunities for all.
Deadline for abstracts: 14th February 2010

I was wondering if Judith Butler’s lecture is available (the video) somewhere in the internet? Thanks,
We hope to be able to provide a link to the lecture on this website soon.
Judith Butler’s conference address isn’t available at the moment but you can hear her speaking about Jewish criticisms of Israeli state violence here: http://backdoorbroadcasting.net/2010/05/judith-butler-co-habitation-universality-and-remembrance/
Although, Judith gave this talk on 24th May it is particularly resonant with recent events in Gaza.
