The 8th European Feminist Research Conference welcomes papers that keep in focus the connections among a number of relevant axes that frame current researches in the field. We have in mind connections between disciplines and interdisciplinarity ; the past, the present and the future ; gender and intersectionality ; activism and power ; local and global ; margin and center.
