CALL FOR PAPERS
"Difference that makes no Difference: The Non-Performativity of Intersectionality and Diversity"
Termin: 5th February 2015
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:

Date: Dec 8-10, 2014
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)

Deadline for applications: October 15th, 2014

Course Dates: December 2nd - December 4th, 2014
Maximum number of participants: 20
Location: Uppsala University
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.
Teachers: Eva Silfver, Umeå University Anita Hussénius, Uppsala University Endla Lõhkivi, Tartu University

Call for Proposals: “What is intersectional about intersectionality now?”
Atlantis: Critical Studies in Gender, Culture & Social Justice
Editors: Corinne L. Mason and Amanda D. Watson
DEADLINE: June 30, 2014
Following the coining of the term “intersectionality” in Kimberle Crenshaw’s (1989) essay, “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence against Women of Color,” feminist theory, methodologies, practices, pedagogies, and activisms have aimed to be intersectional. In fact, intersectionality is now understood as the most important theoretical intervention into feminist studies, and its mainstreaming marks a major paradigm shift in feminist praxis (McCall 2005; Nash, 2008). For example, the phrase, “My feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit” is now a ubiquitous phrase in the feminist blogosphere (Flavia Dzodan, 2011). Its popularization within the field has lead to increasingly sophisticated analyses of power, and yet, the mainstreaming of intersectionality has also lead to the hollowing-out and depoliticization of the concept.
In this edited collection, we aim to collect timely essays that map out the intellectual and political terrain for intersectionality scholarship and practice in the context of ever shifting, changing, transforming, and mutating systems of domination, crisis, control, terror, and boundaries. We are particularly interested in the failures ofintersectional theorizing to plot the constitutive functioning of the political, economic, and social at this historical moment. Following Jasbir Puar’s (2007) critical analysis of intersectionality, we will solicit essays that take seriously the institutionalization of intersectionality, and what is lost, gained, and made im/possible in these sites of feminist praxis.
We are particularly interested in the following topics and themes:
Intersectionality and pedagogy/intersectionality in the classroom/intersectionality in the academy
Feminist activism and intersectional critiques
Intersectional failures, post-human, and new technologies
Assemblages, affect, and intersectionality
Identity politics, politics of naming, and dis-identification
Transnational feminism and global intersectionality
Institutionalization of intersectionality (government, women’s organizations, shelters, research hubs)
Indigenous feminisms and intersectionality
Intersectionality, blogging, Third/Fourth Wave Feminisms
