LOVA's International Conference 2011

Ethnographies of Gender and Conflict

6-8 July, Amsterdam 

After our successful international conference Ethnographies of Gender and Globalization in 2008, LOVA presents another opportunity for researchers to come together in the city of Amsterdam. From 6-8 July, our 2nd international conference: Ethnographies of Gender and Conflict will take place. 

            Conflicts are always about power. Conflicts are therefore intrinsic to all social relationships and interactions and as such they have provided the arena for important social science research. The scholarly attention for gender and conflict is of a much more recent date. These concepts seem to be two sides of the same coin as both are first and foremost about power inequalities and are embedded in social relations and practices. The two nourish and mutually inform each other. Gender constructions shape the way conflicts are worked out. Conflicts confirm, construct and change notions of gender. However, as a conceptual pair gender and conflict are still searching for theoretical ground. As it happens, gender never operates in isolation. For an in-depth understanding of conflicts an analysis of the intersectionality of gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality and class is indispensible. This conference will be an exciting platform to highlight innovative debates and theoretical approaches of gender and conflict and to present current research. Feminist anthropology, gender studies and ethnographic research with a gender lens are scholarly practices par excellence that make the interrelationship between gender and conflict comprehensible.  

            Conflicts have many faces. They are collective or individual, non-violent or violent, concealed or open, sophisticated or aggressive, large or of the smallest scale. Conflicts are manifest in intimate relations, in the workplace, in the public and the private, in the largest war and the smallest controversies between two people. Actors involved in conflicts vary from the most powerful kind such as transnational organizations and nation-states to individual women and men, families and villages. All these actors have in common that the conflicts they create and participate in have a large impact on themselves and everyday life. The ways conflicts are dealt with are as diverse as their actors are: negotiation, coercion, violence, capitulation, war, silent resistance, submission, protests and compliance. Conflicts are everywhere and come in all sorts, but their gendered character means that the outcomes of conflict are different for women and men, that they impact their lives in different ways and that women and men experience conflicts differently.  

            This conference 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? 

 

Participation and registration: LOVA invites scholars to participate in this international conference by presenting their research in a panel or as an individual paper. We encourage participants to submit audio-visuals and other alternative ways of presenting their research too. We also encourage student (under-graduate and graduate) to present their research. Participants may register by sending panel proposals and individual paper abstracts to [log in to unmask] before February 1st, 2011. Participants will be informed in due time after having submitted their abstracts whether or not their panels and/or papers have been accepted. 

 

Panel proposals include a short panel abstract (about 200 words), several paper abstracts, and names of organizers/chairs, presenters and a possible discussant. Please also mention the affiliation, address, email-address and discipline of each participant.

 

Preferred panel format:  Panels last 1 hour and 45 minutes. Panel organizers have a certain freedom in the number of papers they wish to present and the length of the presentations. Nevertheless, we encourage 15 to 20 minute paper presentations with 3 - 4 speakers in one session, so that there is time for discussion after the presentations. 

 

Individual paper proposals should not exceed 200 words. Please also mention affiliation, address, email-address and discipline.
