Organizers: Sibeal Feminist and Gender Studies Network
The quest for equality always involves change, sometimes revolutionary change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
In the wake of a revolution what remains? What is left behind? What changes? And for whom? What compromises are made?
On the 100 year anniversary of the 1916 Rising equality is still a major issue. Gender recognition and rights could define our next 100 years. Has the gender revolution been written into the history books? How will gender be defined? How does this history manifest itself in culture, in history, in literature, in society, in law? What is the difference between revolution and sustainable transformation?
As the revolution continues we must both look back, but continue to move forward.
The conference hopes to explore how definitions have changed, how revolution happens, and how the landscape can change within feminism and gender studies. Influenced by the 1916 Rising we hope to engage and inspire postgraduate and early career researchers from all disciplines to showcase their creative and innovative approaches.
We hope to facilitate practical and theoretical based projects, and encourage researchers to submit panels, proposals for workshops, round tables, feminist performances or exhibitions.
