Call for papers
Call for papers - Conference: “Gender and contraception: what kind of (r)evolutions?”
The aim of the conference on “Gender and contraception” is to question those “(r)evolutions”, by synthetizing existing research and offering new leads on birth control practices (including contraception and abortion) from a gender studies perspective, with special attention to other power relations (class, race, age, disability). We seek a discussion between different fields dealing with contraception (demography, sociology, history, anthropology, political sciences, epidemiology, etc.)
1st axis: The politics of contraception
2nd axis: contraception, markets, industries, techniques
3rd axis: Medicalization, professions, institutions
4th axis: Trajectories and contraceptive practices
5th axis: Sexuality, responsibility, gender norms
Conditions/Terms of participation
The “Gender and contraception” conference aims at gathering many disciplines in order to produce state of the art research on birth control issues (contraception and abortion) and their political, social, sanitary and sexual stakes, in France and in other geographical contexts. Comparative or transnational approaches will be appreciated.
This call for papers encourages proposals in English or French from academic institutions, as well as research from non-academic entities – professionals, activists, or members of associations relating to this area of research. Proposals by young researchers (graduates) are more than welcome.
Proposals should be sent at firstname.lastname@example.org. They should consist of an abstract of 3000 to 5000 characters maximum (including spaces). They should include the paper title and the name, e-mail address, position, discipline and institutional affiliation of all author(s). Paper proposals will be anonymously evaluated by members of the scientific committee.
