From a growing number of individuals in policy forming positions who operate beyond the constraints of traditional hegemonic masculinity, to an increase in gendered political groups responding progressively to cultural and governmental structures and policies, the discourse on identity and gender politics has had a resurgence in recent years. As a result, this theme has become one of necessity for academics and practitioners to re-evaluate when contributing to a contemporary discourse in International Relations.
This is the goal of the 8th Annual AGS Graduate Student Conference : “Identity and Gender Politics within International Relations.” This will conference will seek to analyze the impact of identity and gender—often conditioned by class, race, biology and sexuality—within the social and cultural framework of International Relations. Commonalities and intersections between these areas, as well as their impact on interstate and state governance, international conflict, and public awareness are the main concerns of conference contributors.
Scholars, practitioners in the field, and graduate students from countries around the world will present and discuss such themes regarding gender and identity as it relates to social movements, violence, leadership, education, poverty, culture, etc.
By connecting practitioners and academics, this 8th Annual AGS Graduate Student Conference will aim to develop and provoke discussions on the impact of these issues within the international sphere.
