The Presence of Gender

Gender Institute 20th Anniversary Conference

  • Friday 9 May 2014
  • 9.00am - 8.30pm
  • Lower Ground Floor, New Academic Building, LSE
*Registration for the conference is now closed, but all are welcome to attend the evening keynote public lecture with Sylvia Chant and Inderpal Grewal.

The Gender Institute draws together perspectives from social sciences and humanities to understand and address gender relations. Characterised by the combination of critical, interdisciplinary, intersectional, theoretical and empirical approaches, the work addresses the continued presence of gendered power relations and inequalities. It is this “presence of gender” that the 20th anniversary conference draws attention to. Bringing together scholars, policy makers and activists, we reflect on the multiple inequalities of our time and how we might analyse and forge new theoretical and practical paths to confront them through activism, policy, research and teaching on Gender.
