Stream Lead: Dr Sideeq Mohammed, Kent Business School, University of Kent

In addition to the specialist streams running as part of GWO 2020 Conference at Kent, we will also be running an open stream. This is for submissions which explore issues related to the overall theme of the conference “Transforming Contexts, Transforming Selves: Gender in New Times” but which do not have an exact fit with the streams which have a particular research focus.

Enquiries about the open stream should be sent to Sideeq Mohammed at S.Mohammed@kent.ac.uk


Abstracts of approximately 500 words (submitted directly to stream leaders, ONE page, WORD NOT PDF, single-spaced, excluding any references, no headers, footers or track changes) are invited by Friday 1st November 2019. Decisions on acceptance of abstracts will be made by stream leaders within one month and communicated to authors by Monday 2nd December 2019.  All contributions will be independently refereed.  Abstracts should include FULL contact details, including name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, and e-mail address. Abstracts should be emailed to S.Mohammed@kent.ac.uk.
