2020 Gender, Work and Organization Conference Calls for Stream Proposals and Leaders

Launched in 1994, Gender, Work & Organization was the first journal to provide an arena dedicated to debate and analysis of gender relations, the organisation of gender and the gendering of organisations. The Gender, Work & Organization conference provides an international forum for debate and analysis of contemporary debates affecting gender studies.

The 11th Biennial International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held at Kent Business School on 24-26 June 2020. The conference is organised by University of Kent’s Dr Patricia Lewis and Professor Ruth Simpson of Brunel University London.

The 2016 conference hosted at Keele University, UK and the 2018 conference in Sydney, Australia hosted by Macquarie University, attracted up to 400 international scholars from over 30 nations.

The conference is organised primarily as a series of streams, stream proposals that address the central theme of ‘Transforming Contexts, Transforming Selves: Gender in New Times’ are particularly welcome. Expressions of interest for the role of stream convenor at the conference and proposals for stream topics are now being invited.
