The 2009 conference was theme was regulation and resistance. It was held at the Institute of Education in central London.
The conference questions were:
How do education and gender regulate?
How do we theorize, research, talk about and enact resistances to regulatory practices and gendered power relations in education?
The theme, ‘Gender: Regulation and Resistance in Education’ invited engagement with gender and feminism at every level of educational practice, including politics, theorizing, policy creation, research methodologies, pedagogical engagement and grass-roots activism. The conference drew together an exceptional range of international speakers working at the cutting edge of feminist and gender theory and research, and political and educational activism, including those who are resisting current contexts of neo-liberal economic reform and increasing global disparities.
