CFP: Ethnographies of gender and conflict

Conferene: LOVA’s 2nd International Conference
Place: University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Date: July 6-8, 2011
Submission deadline for abstracts: February 1, 2011

Description: "This conference organized by LOVA, the Netherlands Association for Gender Studies and Feminist Anthropology, intends to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars with the aim of deepening our theoretical knowledge about gender and conflict. Through the presentation of case-studies and ethnographic research questions will be discussed such as: how are the concepts of gender and conflict related and how does gender intersect with race, sexuality and class in conflicts? How do gender notions construct, confirm and alter conflicts and how in turn do conflicts inform the intersectionality of gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality and class? How do women and men, girls and boys initiate, perceive, deal and solve conflicts and do they do so in different ways? And, last but not least, what can ethnography offer to the field of conflict and conflict studies?"
