Border Regimes, Territorial Discourses & Feminist Politics (NORA Conference, University of Iceland)

Deadline: 30/10/2018

The 2019 NORA conference on critical feminist cross-disciplinary research and activities relying on contemporary and/or historical perspectives is held at the University of Iceland, May 22-24, 2019. It focuses on the theme of material and symbolic borders in a period of nationalist revival. What explains the return to territoriality? What kind of political, cultural, and social boundaries are being constructed or reproduced? How are border regimes in the present and the past shaping and gendering relations? How are new or redefined boundaries affecting work for social justice and equality as well as intersectional, gender, queer and feminist research? And how can feminist resistance be organized against paternalistic modes that reinstate and reinforce relations of inequality?
