Border Regimes, Territorial Discourses and Feminist Politics

Gender and feminist researchers are invited to participate in the NORA 2019 Conference on critical feminist cross-disciplinary research and activities.

The conference is co-hosted by RIKK – Institute for Gender, Equality and Difference, the EDDA Research Center and the United Nations University Gender Studies and Training Programme at the University of Iceland.

The 2019 NORA – Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research – conference focuses on the theme of material and symbolic borders in a period of nationalist revival. What explains the return to territoriality? What kind of political, cultural, and social boundaries are being constructed or reproduced? How are border regimes in the present and the past shaping and gendering relations? How are new or redefined boundaries affecting work for social justice and equality as well as intersectional, gender, queer and feminist research? And how can feminist resistance be organized against paternalistic modes that reinstate and reinforce relations of inequality?

We invite you to submit paper proposals, which rely on contemporary and/or historical perspectives, for this cross-disciplinary conference.

Nationalism, Populism, Borders, Boundaries, Feminist Critique, Gender Equality, Decolonialisation, Decoloniality, Humanimalism, Intersectionality, Indigenism, Exceptionalism, Adaptability, Migration, Bodies, Territoriality, Masculinities, Sexualities, Race, Racism, Resistance.
