CFP on gender and work in rural regions: Rural Frontiers In-between Tradition and Change

Are you doing research in the field of gender and work in rural regions?

We call for contributions to a stream on gender and work in rural regions for the Gender Work and Organization conference, 24-26 June 2020 in University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.

While much of the research on gender, work, organization and entrepreneurship is conducted in urban settings, we are interested in contributions that analyse the impact of a rural context on gendered working conditions and relationships. More discussion is needed on how rural and sparsely populated regions experience the current societal changes and their impact on working lives. Intersections of gender with age, race, ethnicity, class, caste and sexuality in relation to daily life around work need to be discussed with rurality in focus.

Abstracts of approximately 500 words are invited by Friday 1st November 2019, emailed to Hilde G. Corneliussen:

Read the full CFP including required format here.

We hope to see your contribution to the stream “Rural Frontiers In-between Tradition and Change: gender, work and organization in rural contexts” (stream 8).

Stream convenors: Hilde G. Corneliussen, Radhika Gajjala, Minna Salminen-Karlsson

CFP: IEEE TALE 2018 – Engineering Next-Generation Learning

Fancy a conference a warm place?

IEEE TALE 2018 will be in Wollongong in December this year!

I have not attended this conference before, but it looks interesting also in content:

TALE is the IEEE Education Society’s flagship Asia-Pacific (IEEE Region 10) conference, catering to researchers and practitioners with an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education

This year’s theme, Engineering Next-Generation Learning, adopts a future-facing perspective in addressing this dual focus. To this end, papers and other contributions are solicited that relate to two distinct but interconnected and overlapping strands:

  • Preparing the Next Generation of Engineers and Technologists
  • Engineering the Next Generation of Learning Technologies, Approaches and Environments

Gender and diversity in STEM is of course on the list!

Option for new authors to submit and receive feedback early. Otherwise deadline in June. See CFP and dates

CFP – HCC13: This Changes Everything

CFP for the 13th IFIP TC9 Human Choice and Computers Conference: “This Changes Everything”, to be held in Poznan, Poland, 19th-21st September 2018
Conference Chairs: David Kreps, Kai Kimppa, Louise Leenen, Charles Ess

Gender is of course a relevant topic in general for a conference like this, but there is also a track on “Gender in ICT” (Track chairs: Sisse Finken, Christina Mörtberg and Johanna Sefyrin), connected to the (sleeping)  working group (WG9.8) on Gender, Diversity and ICT.

Send your full paper before January 15, and perhaps we can revive the sleeping WG9.8 together 🙂

This conference will also be part of the 24th IFIP World Computer Congress!

CFP: The Digital Everyday Conference

Interesting CFP for a conference at King’s College London to be held at May 6th 2017:

The Digital Everyday: Exploration or Alienation?

This international conference aims at exploring the digital everyday, understood as the transformation of everyday life practices brought about by digital technology. From how we buy, walk around, get a cab, love, break up, go to bed, meet new people and sexual partners to the way we rate services, turn on the fridge, exercise, eat, use social media and apps, Big Data is reshaping some of the most basic activities in our lives.
