Call for Abstracts (Deadline 15th January 2014)
Building Futures – Equality Challenges in Higher Education: Encouraging Theory and Practise Dialogues
In September 2014 the Vienna University of Technology invites researchers, university teachers, administrators, policy makers and practitioners and students to attend the 8th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education.
Almost 20 years after the World Conference on Women in Bejing and after 15 years of Gender Mainstreaming in the European Union it is time to reflect critically on the status quo and to develop new strategies for the future.
The conference aims at systematically analysing the status quo and recent experiences with policies promoting gender equality in higher education.
We invite proposals for full paper contributions, poster presentations and complete panel proposals.
Abstracts and panel proposals are to be submitted exclusively through the online application http://gender2014.conf.tuwien.ac.at/call_for_abstracts/ by 15th January 2014.
The conference focuses on three key aspects of gender equality policies in higher education:
1. Reducing vertical and horizontal segregation
2. Tackling the gendered Organisation.
3. Integrating gender dimensions in teaching curricula, teacher education, research funding and research practice.
