Re-scheduled Conference 2021:'The impact of crisis on marginalised groups: Feminist perspectives'
May 28th, 2021
By reason of the global pandemic outbreak, we welcome contributions that explore and problematise the effects and management of crisis on already marginalised groups, such as women, people of colour, disabled people, LGBTQI+ individuals, migrants and sex workers. In particular, we are interested in feminist perspectives that validate and give voice to the experiences, agency and oppression of marginalised communities and individuals, as well as explore the dynamics of the crisis and its management from the perspective of gender, race, class, ability and citizenship.
We think that this topic will capture a wide range of disciplines from law, human rights, sociology, politics, literature, history, health, social work.
Please e-mail abstracts of 300 words max. to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 26th April. Registration will open in May for the conference which will be held online in line with Covid-19 restrictions.

Voices and Choices: Intersecting Global Feminisms
16-17 November, 2018
Ulster University, Belfast
Call for Papers
In a year which marks the centenary of partial women’s suffrage, the 20 year anniversary of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement, and our historic stride towards reproductive justice across the island of Ireland ‘Voices and Choices; intersecting global feminisms’ asks how can feminist and gender studies academics explore the positions of marginalised groups in relation to representation and autonomy not only locally but globally?
This conference seeks to make space for the discussion of the local, the global, and the intersecting layers. Themes spanning from low levels of representation of women and marginalised groups in decision-making positions to the restriction of reproductive justice, to the many forgotten feminist Herstories, experienced in Ireland North and South and paralleled in countless localities the world over will be considered through various feminist lenses.
Taking an intersectional approach this Sibéal 2018 conference invites proposals on a range of themes pertaining to the intersections of activism, academia, and identities around the world.
Suggested themes include:
#representationmatters: women in politics
Forgotten Feminist Herstories
Feminist Herstories of Ireland
Gender and the media
Feminist theories and Literature
Global South Feminisms
Indigenous and Decolonial Feminisms
Feminist law and judgments
Beyond cis-heteronormativity:; queer feminist theory
Intersectional Feminisms and Sex Work
Art as Intersectional Feminist Practice
We particularly invite abstracts from those identifying as from marginalised groups including but not limited to, people of colour, LGB and queer individuals, trans and non-binary people, refugees and asylum seekers, and members of the Traveller Community.
Please submit an author biography of 100 words maximum and an abstract of not more than 250 words, paper title, and suggested keywords, for a 20 minutes paper presentation to email@example.com by 15 July 2018.
