Call for board members
Dear ATGENDER members,
At the General Assembly during this year’s Spring Conference “Feminist Teaching (Through) Emotions, Feelings and Affects” in Gijón, ES (May 10, 2019), there will be elections to renew the Board of ATGENDER.
We are looking for 2 new enthusiastic Board members to join our team! Board members serve for a 3-years term (which can be extended when re-elected). Within the Board, we have working groups that are responsible for particular tasks, such as finance, ‘Teaching with Gender’ book series, communication, external relations, etc.
Are you a member of ATGENDER and willing to candidate to the Board? If so, please send an email to with a short motivation letter (2500 characters max.), short CV, a picture of yours, and possibly a short presentation video (especially if you are not able to attend the conference). Please send your candidacy before April 26, 2019.
If you have any questions to the current Board members about what is expected, or need further clarifications, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can find more details about the role of Board members and the nomination procedure both in our statutes and in the bylaws of ATGENDER.
Thank you for your attention,

The Nomination Committee

Changes to statutes
Dear ATGENDER members,

As you may remember, after the General Assembly in Göttingen (September 14, 2018) and the online General Assembly (October 12, 2018), we amended our Statutes to reflect the significance of sexuality, queer, transgender, LGBTQI studies and issues for our association.
Please find the approved changes highlighted in the attached document.
We are in the process to formally change the statutes at the Chamber of Commerce. Therefore, as suggested during the online General Assembly, we invite members who see a need for additional changes to contact us, so we can work on further amendments. Suggestions can be sent to us before April 17, 2019.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or comments you may have (

With best wishes,
The ATGENDER board

P.S. The full statutes of ATGENDER, including the procedures for changing the statutes, can be found on our website here.
Changes to our statutes can only be made in a General Assembly in which at least two thirds of the members are present or represented, and a majority vote of at least two thirds is in favor of the changes. We therefore urge you to come to the General Assembly on May 10, 2019, in Gijón, ES – during the 2019 Spring Conference “Feminist Teaching (Through) Emotions, Feelings and Affects” – from 13.30h to 15.00h (to be confirmed).
