ATGENDER Conference 2023 (4th-6th September 2023) Kadir Has University, Istanbul

Dear ATGENDER friends,

The Call For Papers for the upcoming ATGENDER Conference Feminist Pedagogy of/beyond Borders is out. While we share it with you, we extend our solidarity with the people affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

The 2023 edition of the ATGENDER Spring Conference is dedicated to the overarching concepts of borders, boundaries, liminalities, and transgressions in turbulent times. The last decade significantly progressed around the themes of wars, neocolonialism, economic and environmental crises, pandemics, etc. that triggered transnational mobility. The technological evolution added a new layer to the notions of accessibility, distance, interaction, and fluidity. Within these experiences, borders and boundaries gain multifarious meanings, both with positive and negative connotations, in which new types of privileges as well as discriminations and disadvantages occur. In such an atmosphere, it becomes inevitable to think about pedagogy. That is to say, feminist pedagogy should consider and re-consider topics of how education is affected and transformed turns in this largely unstable era of shuffling, with various notions of inclusivity; raising questions on how pedagogies can become more inclusive towards disadvantaged groups and their knowledges, how education can come to terms with these new boundaries, and how it can handle and challenge them.

You can find the details of the conference here.
