Gender Studies Conference 2017: Genders through time
Date: November 23-25, 2017/ Jyväskylä, Finland

The annual Finnish gender studies conference Genders through time will be organized at the University of Jyväskylä on 23rd- 25th of November 2017 in collaboration between the University of Jyväskylä and the Association for Gender Studies in Finland (SUNS).

Enquiries that relate to time, temporality, change and permanence have become topical in gender studies. As Finland celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2017, discussions on the relationships between past, present and future hold also a more general interest.

The conference Genders through time will focus on how time and temporality organize our understanding of gender. For example, how are gender(s) conceptualized in different cultures and in different times? How do conceptions of gender(s) shift and change in time? How have gender and genders been given meaning in the past and how will these concepts be constructed in the future? How are time, temporality and gender tied together in politics and economics, education, research and science, language and literature, arts and media?

Feminism, feminist movements and activisms as well as gender research are also bound in time. Perceiving gender, feminism and gender studies through the lens of time and temporality enables and encourages explorations of historicalness and contextuality of gender that uses conceptual frameworks such as intersectionality, superdiversity and critical study of nationalism.

Invited international keynote speakers are Associate Professor Sirma Bilge from the Université de Montréal (CAN) and Professor John Tosh from the University of Roehampton (UK).  In addition, there will domestic and international guest speakers, thematic panels and a grand panel on the times and generations of feminism.
