Gender Studies and the Precarious Labour of Making a Difference

27 Sep

Place: Utrecht, Netherlands

The European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation (ATGENDER) organises once every three years a conference in the spring or in September with a focus on the role of gender studies expertise in activism and professional employment, like NGOs, nonprofit and profit organisations.

The 2024 edition will be held at Utrecht University on September 27-29 and is dedicated to: Gender Studies and the Precarious Labour of Making a Difference: (Un)paid Jobs, Internships, and Volunteering in the Worlds of Activism, Profit, and Non-profit.

Doing gender-related work and producing feminist knowledge takes place across many contexts, both within and outside academia. The conference is exploring how the precarious labour (paid and unpaid) of gender studies experts (students, early career graduates, volunteers, professionals, teachers, researchers) makes a difference in activism, in institutions, and in social reproduction.
