2018 Annual Conference

Mandala-004 by Amy Cheng | www.amychengstudio.com


Feminist Debates on Migration, Inequalities & Resistance as the 2018 conference theme celebrates the domestic and international diversity of feminisms and feminist economic thought, supporting resistance against rising xenophobia, attacks on human rights and threats to equal access to economic opportunities. Feminist economists are working to develop stronger concepts, theories, and frameworks for research on/and distribution of economic growth and development. Submissions are encouraged that critically engage with variations in feminist economic thought across the globe, theorizations and applications of intersectional feminisms in the economy, and the disparate impact of climate change on the global economy as well as its potential for fundamental change towards more sustainable systems. We solicit paper, session and panel proposals that engage with links between theory and action on these topics as well as on a broader range of feminist inquiry into economic phenomena. Proposals with an interdisciplinary character are especially welcome.

SUBMISSIONS: Abstracts (400 words max.) must be submitted online via the IAFFE website (www.iaffe.org) beginning November 6, 2017. Submissions can be made for individual papers, sessions, or panels/roundtables. Participants are limited to one paper presentation and one roundtable/panel appearance. Additional co-authored papers are allowed only if they are presented by the co-author. These limitations allow maximum participation by all members wishing to participate. Please see the IAFFE website, www.iaffe.org, for detailed submission guidelines

DEADLINES: The submission deadline is March 15, 2018. Notifications of acceptance will begin mid-November 2017.

In memory of Rhonda Williams, associate editor of Feminist Economics from 1994 to 1998, the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE) established a prize to help scholars from underrepresented groups in IAFFE, whose work reflects Rhonda Williams's legacy of scholarship and activism, attend the annual IAFFE conference and present a paper. $1,000 to be awarded at the 27th IAFFE Annual Conference in New Paltz, New York, June 19-21, 2018. The funds are intended to partially defray travel costs to attend the annual conference. (For scholars traveling from a long distance, additional funds may be available to assist with travel and conference expenses.) The award winner will also receive a registration fee waiver for the 27th IAFFE Annual Conference.

Criteria: The recipient's work in activism, advocacy, or scholarship should demonstrate a commitment to one or more of the following issues:

  • Inequalities based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality.
  • Interrelationships among racism, sexism, homophobia, and classism.
  • Connections between scholarship and activism.

Special consideration will be given to applicants from groups not well represented in IAFFE and those with limited access to travel funds from their home institutions or international funders. This prize is targeted to junior scholars and activists. The recipient of the prize must present a paper at the IAFFE conference (you must separately submit to present the paper for inclusion in the Conference program at the Conference website) and submit the manuscript to Feminist Economics within a reasonable period after the conference. The paper will undergo an expedited review process, but publication is not guaranteed.
