GENDER, SEXUALITY AND POLITICAL ECONOMY

Call for Papers:

‘Gender, Sexuality and Political Economy’ 
An  interdisciplinary workshop at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
24th-25th May, 2011

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Professor Floya Anthias (Roehampton University, UK)
Professor Rosemary Hennessy (Rice University, USA)
Professor Sylvia Walby (University of Lancaster, UK)
Dr. Jon Binnie (Manchester Metropolitan University, UK)
Dr. Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez (University of Manchester, UK)

Workshop Themes:

This workshop aims to explore politics and cultures of gender, feminism(s) and sexuality from the angle of political economy. We see a divide between approaches which emphasise human action and agency and those focussing on persistent or ‘structural’ inequalities. While gender inequalities are more commonly theorised from within structuralist or materialist frameworks, less work has been undertaken exploring  power relations around sexuality in  connection with questions of political economy. This has implications concerning how to theorise strategies for change. We consider gender and sexuality as distinct yet closely connected categories. Yet in many sociological approaches they still appear as separate, with attempts to explain gender inequalities often marginalising heteronormativity, and work on sexualities having little to say about subordination of women.  In this workshop, we would like to bring work on gender and sexuality in dialogue. We hope the workshop will explore possible complementarities and overlaps (or incommensurabilities) between approaches within feminism(s), women’s studies, transgender studies, lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer studies. Our aim is to strengthen understanding of the current conditions for collaborative agency and coalitional struggles. The current socio-economic crisis of course provides an urgent context for discussion of such questions and for renewed interest in ‘older’ sociological questions and preoccupations.

The focus on the political economy could be regional (in any part of the world) or global. We would like to create a space for, among other, a debate of cuts in state expenditure, neoliberal programmes and policies, growth in class and socio-economically-based inequalities, resource wars and conflicts.

Please send an abstract of not more than 300 words to:
Susie Jacobs (s.jacobs@mmu.ac.uk) and Christian Klesse (c.klesse@mmu.ac.uk).

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday, 14th March, 2011.

The workshop will run for 1 1/2 days on 24th and 25th May at Manchester Metropolitan University, All Saints Campus.  The conference fee is £ 40 (£ 15 for postgraduate students), which includes coffees/teas and lunch on the second day.

We look forward to hearing from you
