DATES: Sunday 9 to Wednesday 12 December, 2018


Organising Committee: Professor Penny Jane Burke; Professor Lisa Adkins; Professor Rosalind Gill; and Associate Professor Ros Smith; Dr Julia Coffey and Dr Akane Kanai, along with the broader CEEHE administrative team.


Theme: “Gender, Post-truth Populism and Pedagogies:
Challenges and Strategies in a Shifting Political Landscape”

Keynote Speakers:Professor Raewyn Connell; Professor Sondra Hales; Professor Susan Page; and Professor Jane Kenway.

The conference theme is intended to provide a platform to critically engage with and interrogate the current political landscape in which debates about knowledge, authority, truth, power and harm are resurfacing and require feminist intervention. A central question underpinning this conference theme is: what does it mean to be pedagogical in a post-truth landscape? And how might feminist scholars work to intervene in this environment? The GEA 2018 conference will provide a forum to explore the challenges and strategies for educators, researchers and participants in higher education in these complex times.

The deadline for abstracts is Friday 2nd February 2018. Abstracts can be submitted via the conference website.
