"Difference, Diversity, Diffraction : Confronting Hegemonies and Dispossessions" refers to a topic central to Gender Studies : the social construction of difference and inequality on the one hand, and the recognition of marginalised experiences and subject positions on the other. In the face of growing right-wing populist movements, anti-feminist and anti-queer backlash, forced migration, austerity and climate change, these concerns take on renewed relevance. The subtitle ’Confronting Hegemonies and Dispossessions’ is a call to reflect on, challenge and defy the hierarchies, subjugations and deprivations that are linked to structural differentiation and to find affirmative ways of dealing with difference, diversity and diffraction. The conference is committed to promoting a feminist anti-racist accessible space for all genders.

We invite contributions from any discipline and are open to a diverse array of feminist, gender and queer approaches. There are eleven thematic streams, whose individual Call for Papers can be found *by clicking on the following links*.

1. Remembering/Representing/Signifying

2. Destructing/Reconciling/Transforming

3. Teaching/Learning/Facilitating

4. Legislating/Politicising/Institutionalising

5. Networking/Solidarising/Bridging

6. Playing/Watching/Observing

7. Embodying/Performing/Affecting

8. Investigating/Analysing/Measuring

Contributions to the streams are invited to utilize one of the following
