We are delighted to announce the interdisciplinary workshop “Gen(d)eration: Gender and Construction of Subjectivity”. The event is funded by the Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD) and will take place at Durham University on 10 May 2019.

The workshop will focus on the interconnections between gender and cultural studies (literature, art, history, philosophy, social sciences, etc.) and will be looking at how the construction of gender is connected to, and interwoven with, writing, capitalism, globalization, trauma, therapy, ethics, transformation and autopoiesis, to name a few.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Gender and Capitalism
  • Gender and Globalization
  • Gender and Trauma
  • Gender and Therapy
  • Gender and Ethics
  • Gender and Authorship
  • Gender and Illness
  • Gender and Subjectivity
  • Gender and Posthumanism
  • Gender and Transformation
  • Gender and Autopoiesis

We invite doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers from Arts, Humanities and Social Science to submit abstracts for consideration. The standard length of a talk will be 20 minutes.

Please send your proposal (300 words maximum) to or by 31 March.
