"2nd European Conference on Politics and Gender"
The website for the Second European Conference on Politics and Gender, happening in Budapest, January 2011, is now online. Please visit the website at for full information about the call for papers and deadlines.
The ECPR Standing Group on Gender and Politics forms a broad-based network on issues relating to the study of gender and sexuality in politics and world politics. Over the past fifteen years, the research conducted in this field has expanded significantly and the number of gender and politics scholars participating in the ECPR Joint Sessions and General Conferences has increased exponentially.
Therefore, in 2007, the Standing Group on Gender and Politics decided to arrange the first ever conference dedicated to this exciting field of research, called the European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG). It was held in Belfast, 21-23 January 2009, and was an enormous success : more than 300 scholars converged for three days of panels, plenaries and socialising. The aim at that time was to turn the new conference into a bi-annual international conference on gender and politics. Interest and enthusiasm remains high, and so we’re very pleased to launch the Second European Conference on Politics and Gender to be held in Budapest, 13-15 January 2011.
The conference will be held in various seminar and lecture rooms around the CEU campus. The conference will be hosted by the Center for Policy Studies and the Department of Gender Studies at CEU.
Co-convenors : Faith Armitage (Birkbeck College, UK) & Karen Celis (University College Ghent, Belgium) Local organiser : Andrea Krizsan (Central European University, Budapest, Hungary)
