Outrage/Action: Leveraging Commitment in Gender Research, Theory and Practice

March 21-22, 2014
George Mason University | Arlington Campus

The Center for the Study of Gender and Conflict (CGC) at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University, invites submission for its Annual Conference, Outrage/Action: Leveraging Passion in Gender Research, Theory and Practice, to be held March 21 -22, 2014 at the George Mason University campus in Arlington, Virginia, just 10 minutes from the heart of D.C.

We invite presentations of individual papers, organized panels and workshops, including those that focus on applicable strategies and skills, as well as artistic/multi-media presentations/performances. To submit, please email scarcgc@gmail.com with an abstract of no more than 250 words plus a brief biography of no more than 100 words. The final date to submit is February 15, 2014.

Outrage/Action: Leveraging Passion in Gender Research, Theory and Practice will cultivate spirited conversation and debate on the intersections of gender and conflict in research and practice. Building from our positions as scholar/practitioners, we will consider how outrage towards injustice, violence and marginalization can fuel our efforts to promote meaningful change.

Substantial groundwork for changing how we think and work with gender and conflict issues has already been laid: a slate of international conventions, laws and networks now exist to promote attention to gender issues as key dimensions of conflict. Virtually all major international organizations dedicated to conflict prevention and resolution incorporate a gendered perspective into their projects. Yet much more remains to be done to bridge the gaps between theoretical innovations and practical commitments, and to create gendered frameworks for analysis and action that can move gender from the margins to the center of our work on conflict.

This conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, theorists, artists, and activists to consider how we can energize the field of conflict resolution with innovative theories, research approaches and practice frameworks. We hope you will join us to engage with the controversies, complexities and tensions that drive our passion!
