We would very much appreciate it if you would circulate this announcement among your colleagues and contacts
This conference will examine the nexus of religion, gender, identity, human rights and politics with a particular focus on Europe in a context of globalisation. It will fill a gap in current literature on religion, politics and society, which tends to ignore or treat as secondary the gendered dimensions of these developments.
The conference will bring together senior and emerging scholars across a range of relevant disciplines including, but not limited to, political science and international relations, sociology, gender and women’s studies, human rights and socio-legal studies, development, anthropology, European studies, and religious studies.
