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 the University of Kent’s Professor 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.

Timeline for abstracts:

  • Stream convenors circulate their stream call for abstracts. Deadline for submission of abstracts to stream convenor, Friday 15 November 2019
  • Stream convenor decision on acceptance of abstract communicated to author by Monday 2 December 2019

Open stream

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. Call for abstracts can be found here.

Please submit an abstract to your chosen stream by emailing it to the relevant stream convenors. The list of streams available can be found here
