"Difference that makes no Difference: The Non-Performativity of Intersectionality and Diversity"

Termin: 5th February 2015

International Workshop

Frankfurt Research Center for Postcolonial Studies (FRCPS)

in cooperation with the

Women's Network, Excellence Cluster "The Formation of Normative Orders"

Goethe University Frankfurt

Keynote: Prof. Dr. Sara Ahmed (Goldsmiths, University of London)

Regardless of the hype about intersectionality and diversity as

emancipatory concepts, they remain predominantly symbolic commitments inacademic discourses and institutional practices. Despite claims to “dodiversity” and to be diverse, discourses and institutions sustain thestatus quo through Eurocentric and Androcentric academic curricula anddiscriminatory hiring practices. The rhetoric of diversity is employed todeflect charges of racism and hetero/sexism, even as there is systematicresistance against the institutionalization of diversity. The aim of thisworkshop is to explore the ideological function of diversity andintersectionality as legitimizing performance indicators in academicdiscourses and institutions.


Submission of Paper Proposals

We invite paper proposals that address the issue of non-performativity of

diversity and intersectionality. Please submit abstracts (max. 350 words)and a short bio-note (max. 100 words) by 30th November to:


All proposals and presentations must be in English. A limited number oftravel bursaries will be provided for paper presenters (preference will be given to applicants from the global South). Please motivate yourapplication for travel funding in a short accompanying letter (max. 300 words).

Zeit: 14.11.2014-15.11.2014,

Ort: St. Paul, Dutzendteichstr. 24, 90478 Nürnberg

Deadline: 07.11.2014

Die Diskussion über die Implementierung von Geschlecht als mehrfach
relationale historische Kategorie in Geschichtsdidaktik und
Geschichtsunterricht ist in den letzten Jahren erweitert und
differenziert worden. So brachte die Einführung der Kategorie Gender für
die Analyse historischer Prozesse neue Erkenntnisse für die Frauen- und
Geschlechtergeschichte und führte ihr Potential für die Untersuchung von
Machtgeflechten zu Forschungen über die Geschichte der Männlichkeiten.
Eine erneute Perspektiverweiterung erfolgte durch den Begriff der
Intersektionalität, bei dem die Überschneidung und das Zusammenspiel
unterschiedlicher sozialer Kategorien wie Class, Race und Gender zur
Untersuchung gesellschaftlicher Verhältnisse erfasst und erforscht

Die geschichtsdidaktische Diskussion über diese Entwicklungen und die
praktische Nutzbarmachung für den Geschichtsunterricht sind in vollem
Gange. Die Beurteilung, ob die hier skizzierten Entwicklungen nunmehr in
den "Mainstream" der didaktischen Forschung und in den Lehralltag
eingegangen seien, wird dennoch geteilt ausfallen. Wie sind die
theoretischen Konzepte in der schulischen Praxis anwendbar?

Auf der Tagung sollen Pluralität und Kontroversität der
geschichtsdidaktischen Genderforschung diskutiert und Vorschläge für den
Geschichtsunterricht gemacht sowie Probleme aufgezeigt werden. Dabei
werden sowohl konkrete Themenstellungen des Unterrichts aufgegriffen als
auch Diskurse und Narrationen über Gender und Geschlechterordnungen in
Geschichte und Geschichtskultur behandelt.

Die Tagung richtet sich an eine geschichtswissenschaftliche
Fachöffentlichkeit, an Geschichtslehrkräfte und Studierende sowie an ein
interessiertes Fachpublikum außerschulischer Bildungseinrichtungen.

A Conference for PhD students, other scholars, artists, and activists, interested in conversations across borders between academia, art and activism 

Organized by the Swedish-International Gender Research School, InterGender.

Venue: Linköping University, Sweden

The conference will gather academic scholars, PhD students in particular, artists and activists. Excitable writing encompasses the problems connected to academic knowledge production and writing. In academia, writing is often seen as an instrumental add-on, instead of understood as an integrated part of research and learning processes - a part which can sustain processes of disruption and resistance to inherent discrimination structures, powerful conventions and rituals, but which can also prolong exclusions and protect elitist practices. In this conference, we will explore the exciting perspectives of writing:

· writing as a passionate and playful way to produce transformative knowledge and poetic, world making truths,

· writing as a way to sustain research and learning processes,

· writing as way to break boundaries between the academic, the poetic and the political.

Through workshops and plenaries, using alternative formats, we will jointly reflect on the world making capacities of critical, poetic and reflective writing - the abilities of such writing to change social realities. The conference will create and sustain transversal, cross-cutting dialogues between academics, artists and activists. It is meant to offer inspiring discussions and perspectives, most of all for PhD-students, on the power of writing as an important tool in their research, but other scholars, artists and activists, interested in the transformative, performative and poetic powers of writing are also most welcome. The event consists of dialogical settings as well as workshops to experience, apply and discuss in more detail challenges of excitable writing in and in-between academia, art and activism.

Please, submit suggestions for workshops or interventions before Sept 25 to InterGender's research coordinator Björn Pernrud, bjorn.pernrud[at]liu.se

Suggestions should include:

· your name and affiliation, plus short presentation/bio-note (10-15 lines)

· title of workshop/intervention, 10-15 lines description of contents, description format  (alternatives to standard paper presentations are most welcome)

Organizing committee:

Professor Lann Hornscheidt, Humboldt University, Germany

Professor Nina Lykke, Linköping University, Sweden

Doctoral Student Evelyn Hayn, Humboldt University, Germany

Doctoral Student Wibke Straube, Linköping University, Sweden

Dr. Astrida Neimanis, Linköping University, Sweden

Dr. Hanna Hallgren, Linné University, Sweden

Dr. Redi Koobak, Linköping University, Sweden

The conference is funded by the Swedish Research Council. It concludes a seven year grant period for the Swedish-International InterGender Research School as well as marks the transition to a more long-term establishing of InterGender as International Consortium for Interdisciplinary Feminist Research Training.

Deadline for applications: October 15th, 2014

Organized by: Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University, together with Department of Science and Mathematics Education, Umeå University.

Course Dates: December 2nd - December 4th, 2014

Maximum number of participants: 20

Location: Uppsala University

Course description:

This InterGender course will focus on the intersections of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and social class with science knowledge, practices, and learning. In doing so, the course explores how gender, science and learning are interrelated, and how they shape each other in dynamic and complex ways. The course is divided into two strands, where the first strand introduces feminist critiques of science and the second strand focuses on identity perspectives on science learning. The first strand will discuss seminal and contemporary perspectives on feminist science studies (by authors such as Donna Haraway, Evelyn Fox Keller and Karen Barad), thereby engaging in a critical discussion of how science is a producer of meaning and materialities. The second strand will provide students with an overview of contemporary research examining issues of identity in relation to educational and vocational science practices, from different perspectives.

Eva Silfver, Umeå University
Anita Hussénius, Uppsala University
Endla Lõhkivi, Tartu University
