Caring in Uncaring Times
CfP is now out! ATGENDER Spring Conference 2020, 13-15 May 2020 ‘Caring in Uncaring Times’, Middlesex University, London. Abstract submission deadline 16th December. The conference will explore the possibilities for and necessity of embedding care in policy and activism. Adopting a broad approach to the concepts of care, policy and activism, we invite proposals from researchers, activists, practitioners, carers, archivists, artists and others from a range of backgrounds and disciplines to explore care and caring in all its diversity and invites participants to reflect on the devastating consequences of an uncaring state (across a range of time and places), and the vital work of activism and policy that centres care.
Since 2011, ATGENDER organizes a Spring conference every year. This represents a great occasion for members to gather and discuss relevant topics in the field. One Spring conference focused on education is followed the next year by one focused on activism and policy making. On the third year, the bigger European Feminist Research Conference is organized. In 2020, the Spring conference will be held at Middlesex University (London, UK).
