Coordinated by EUI Max Weber Fellows, Iuliia Lashcuk, Christina Maraboutaki, and Ashley Mantha-Hollands, the workshop aims to bring together EUI researchers from across departments to discuss the ways in which the construct of 'gender' impacts their work, with 'impact' being understood as the topic of study, the chosen methodology, or the researcher's own positionality within academia.

The workshop, taking place at the EUI's Badia Fiesolana, will hold three panels over one day. In the first two panels, selected participants will have the opportunity to present and receive feedback on their research from a multidisciplinary audience. The last panel will feature a roundtable discussion where participants will be invited to reflect on the ways in which gender has shaped their academic experience.

Proposals should fit broadly within one of the following themes of the workshop:

  • Gender as a topic of inquiry

Examples include, but are not limited to: researchers studying women's rights, reproductive laws, gender economics, migration, and gender.

  • Gender as a methodology

Examples include, but are not limited to: researchers that work with feminist epistemologies, intersectional analysis, critical/queer theory, and feminist jurisprudence.

Interested researchers may send their abstracts of a maximum of 500 words to Ashley Mantha-Hollands by 13 March 2024.
