Andrea Petó - Right-wing and anti-gender movements in Europe: How gender became a pop-science (UGENT)

28/09/2017

public lecture + master class

This event is part of the Hot Topic lecture series on gender, supported by the UGent Doctoral Schools. Both the master class and public lecture address some of the challenges students and scholars of gender are facing when studying gender equality politics in a globalized world. Activists and scholars have discussed the current state of gender equality values globally through an analysis of anti-gender discourses and movements, especially in Europe (Kováts & Põim 2015; Köttig, Bitzan & Petö 2017). While the success of religious movements globally are often pointed at as responsible for supporting gender-conservative values (e.g. Egypt, Turkey, India), other contexts of heightened nationalism and authoritarianism provide examples of secular threat to present and aspired regimes of gender, sexuality and reproductive rights (e.g. Poland, US, Russia).

In this lecture and master class we examine what anti-gender movements can tell us about global gender politics and the current international regimes promoting gender equality values. The focus lies on anti-gender movements in Europe and its possible interpretative and theoretical frameworks. The aim is to analyse the state of anti-gender movements in Europe and to assess the impacts of counter strategies by progressive actors. The lecture argues that anti-gender movements are a new phenomenon in European politics which requires new methods to study and different counter strategies from progressive forces.

We further interrogate what can be the role of anthropologists, sociologists and students of gender and sexuality in studying this changing social landscape of post-secular society, heightened nationalism and the rise of the right and gender-conservative policies globally. What are the theoretical, discursive pitfalls when studying gender, religion/secularism and politics together, such as the problem of reification? How does questioning the scientific value of gender studies by anti-gender movements challenge teaching gender studies? What kind of responses are possible when illiberal states are questioning autonomy of education?

This event is hosted by the Centre for Research on Culture and Gender (UGent) and co-organised with Rhea - Centre for Expertise on Gender, Diversity and Intersectionality (VUB), Interculturalism, Migration and Minorities Research Centre (KULeuven), Research Group Citizenship, Equality & Diversity (Antwerp University).
