Gendered Innovations in the Social Sciences
International symposium – call for papers

What impact does women’s limited presence in key fields of research have upon our capacity to grapple with social and political change? And if gender is ignored as an analytic category, can the social sciences make a meaningful contribution to understanding or resolving issues of gender inequality in society?

This conference will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra 7-9 November 2016. The conference aims to compare the status of gender analysis and feminist research in different social science disciplines.
