About the conference

In 2012, the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research organised the g12 conference in Gothenburg. Two years later g14 was held in collaboration with UCGS at Umeå University. Thereafter g16 was held in collaboration with Tema Genus at Linköping University. The next g-conference is g19, in Gothenburg on 7-9 October 2019.

The conferences aim to bring together the broad and interdisciplinary fields that constitute Swedish gender research today, and thereby create the conditions for critical review, the exchange of experiences, and opportunities to form new constellations. The principal target group for these conferences is researchers, but they are open to anyone who wishes to register.

Gender research is a relatively young field of research where there is constant development of concepts, methods and research objects. Today, there are scholars with a gender orientation in virtually all academic disciplines and interdisciplinary research, while there are also scholars in the specific field of gender studies. Horizontal themes and keynote sessions for the conference are arrived at through discussions in a scholarly committee. In addition, the conference programme constitutes the submitted abstracts from researchers, activists and practitioners in the field of gender studies and gender equality.


Rethinking Knowledge Regimes - Solidaritites and Contestations

This year, we have invited researchers, scholars and practitioners to participate in g19, titled Rethinking Knowledge Regimes - Solidaritites and Contestations. The conference seeks to bring together the broad and interdisciplinary field that constitutes gender studies in Sweden today. It addresses the current societal challenges at both local and global levels, and enquires about how gender studies can contribute to analysing the major events in the contemporary world. The conference aims at stimulating cooperation among researchers from various academic disciplines and targets scholars, students, practitioners and activists.
