The Center for the Study of Gender and Conflict is proud to announce our 5th annual research conference, 'Theorizing Linkages, Practicing Solidarity: Feminist Approaches to Conflict Resolution' will be taking place from April 6-7 at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. The conference will showcase work from graduate students, faculty, practitioners and artists who are broadly grappling with questions related to feminism and conflict resolution and feminist conflict resolution practice. Themes to be discussed at the conference include:
- Feminist methodological, pedagogical, and theoretical innovations on issues related to conflict and violence
- International and transnational feminisms
- Solidarity, resistance, and feminst coalitional politics
- Theorizing power and agency
- Art, creativity, imagination and feminist conflict resolution practice
This conference will provide an opportunity to share work and resources, grapple with difficult questions that face feminist conflict resolution practitioners and theorists, and build bridges and relationships between feminists working in this field. In addition, we will be hosting a social event that is open to the public at The Potters House in Washington D.C. following the first day of the conference. Details for that event can be found here Conference Mixer/Queer Open Mic @ Potter's House.
These opportunities to come together to share and build collective power are desparately needed in these difficult times. We sincerely hope you will join us!
