Thinking about violence in Africa through women’s experiences: vulnerability & subversion

Published on 16 January par Institut du genre

The two-day conference "Junges Forum" 2020 seeks to reflect on women’s experiences of violence in Africa from an interdisciplinary perspective. The aim is not to discuss passive experience in the context of violence (if it exists at all) but to attempt to outline different experiences of violence (symbolic, social, domestic, epistemic, political or sexual) as well as to explore how they can be transformed, appropriated and reversed.

The "Junges Forum" explicitly invites young researchers (PhD students, postdoctoral scholars) to share their ideas from various disciplines (anthropology, film studies, gender studies, history, literary studies, psychology, sociology, etc.) in order to encourage an interdisciplinary exchange and open debates related to the topic. The main focus is to be on African countries and regions only.

Berlin, Centre Marc Bloch, June 29th-30th, 2020
Paper proposals, in French or English, should be sent before the 15th of February 2020.
