Gender, Post-truth Populism and Pedagogies: Challenges and Strategies in a Shifting Political Landscape
#GEAconf2018 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.
We are delighted to announce that the Call for Papers for #GEAconf2018 is now live.
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 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.
The conference features a stellar line-up of keynote speakers, including: Professor Raewyn Connell; Professor Sondra Hales; Professor Susan Page; and Professor Jane Kenway.
#GEAConf2018 welcomes 400-word abstracts for individual papers, roundtable discussions and symposia, along with other formats that share ideas and generate discussions in innovative ways.
The deadline for abstracts has been extended to Friday 23rd February 2018. Further information about the CfP and how to submit can be found via the conference website.
