Description

QueerFemSEE is an interdisciplinary conference that seeks to explore various accounts of South-Eastern and Eastern European researchers (and their Western peers with similar interests) concerning topics connected to media studies, cultural studies, public space, and their intersection with gender and queer studies.

One of the key concepts for discussion is intersectionality. Although in the last decade’s scholars in cultural and media studies have begun to address issues such as gender, race, ethnicity, disability, sexualities in their work, there is still a gap concerning the amount of research in this direction between Western academic spaces and the Eastern ones.

Conference: Privacy Outside Its Comfort Zone

Posted on February 9th, 2017 in ArchiveRespond to this post »

Deadline: 28 February 2017 Open to: scholars and PhD students who work on the concept of “privacy” in the context of Late Socialist Eastern and East-Central Europe Venue: December 8-10, 2017 at the University of Passau, Germany

Description

“Privacy” is a well-researched yet highly disputed concept in Western scholarship.

The framework of Western liberal societies may therefore be seen not only as a “comfort zone” of privacy studies, but also as a barrier that often limits the potential of the research. This conference aims at elucidating the problems and the perspectives of privacy studies beyond... Read More »
