The 9th European Feminist Research Conference – Sex & Capital, 3 – 6 June 2015, University of Lapland, Rovaniemi

août 1, 2014

The 9th European Feminist Research Conference (EFRC 2015) – Sex & Capital, will be organized at the University of Lapland 3 – 6 June 2015. The event is organized by the Faculty of Education together with Atgender organization.

Recent economic crises and their worldwide impacts have highlighted the relationship between global politics and the economy. Indeed, economic discourses reign supreme and it looks like capitalism has won, which raises feminist concern. The power of economics has become palpable: the scramble for natural resources has put the multi-ethnic Arctic on centre stage; new sectors – education and care among them – are being commercialized; and trafficking in women and the consumption and commodification of sexed bodies appear in new, intensified forms. Then again, issues that feminist research and politics have promoted are now realities for a large number of women: multicultural life, diversification of family forms and sexual identities, and the women’s economy. Despite this progress, the need for equality politics and feminist activism has not diminished.

Sex & Capital invites scholars, students, policy makers and activists to gather and discuss and reflect upon these themes. Confirmed keynote speakers are Begüm Basdas (Amnesty International, Turkey), Naila Kabeer (LSE), Rauna Kuokkanen (University of Toronto) and Suvi Ronkainen (University of Lapland). Call for papers will be sent out September 1, 2014.
