Interuniversity Gender Research Seminar: How to study the complexity of femininities, masculinities and gender fluidity? (UA/VUB/UGent)

03/05/2018 - 04/05/2018

The seminar is an annual interdisciplinary conference, jointly organised by the University of Antwerp, the Ghent University and The Vrije Universiteit Brussel. It relates gender to broader issues of diversity, epistemology and questions of (in)equality in power in society, culture and politics from a critical research perspective.

This year’s focal question is “How to study the complexity of femininities, masculinities and gender fluidity?” The previous years have witnessed a growing interest in men’s and masculinities’ studies and a renewed attention to femininity as a theoretical paradigm or concept. Building on this literature, the upcoming seminar will reflect upon what masculinities and femininities there are, how they emerge, get shaped, interact with each other, prevail or get marginalized. In a similar vein, the concept of gender fluidity deconstructs or at least distinguishes more than the binary feminine-masculine construct, pointing at a broad range of sex or gender constructions that exist on a continuum between what tends to be labelled as men and women. It is thus not only interesting to look at these three concepts in themselves, but especially at their interplay and how they interact. Academic speakers, practitioners and PhD students are invited to inquire about the concepts of femininities, masculinities and gender fluidity and how to integrate them into research from a theoretical, empirical and a methodological point of view.
