Call for papers and contributions
Bridging gender research and policy making: missing links, good practices, future scenarios
ATGENDER Spring Conference, 19-21 April 2017, Vilnius
Organised by ATGENDER, The European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation, with support from the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) and Vilnius University (VU), the 2017 edition of the ATGENDER Spring conference is dedicated to building dialogues between gender researchers, activists, students, educators and policy makers.
The main goal of this conference is to address gaps between academic research in gender studies and the practice of gender policy making and implementation in light of current political and social issues in Europe. The conference invites participants to consider how to make gender research more accessible outside the academic community and how to make gender policy better informed by recent scholarship. It also urges participants to think about how to overcome the dualism of theory and practice in the quest for future gender equality in Europe.
ATGENDER particularly encourages contributions by policy makers, information specialists, archivists, civil society activists and academics. Graduate students are also invited to contribute to the conference with academically informed and politically engaged papers.
