2019 Annual Conference

Registration alignment and perfection_d2 by Hannah Clinch | https://www.tacit-tacit.co.uk/

The 2019 conference theme, Solidarities and Challenges at the Intersection of Inequalities, invites scholars, practitioners and activists engaged with the field of feminist economics to bring questions of ‘identity’ and ‘place’ into one of the most important debates in the current era: rising inequalities in income and wealth across the world. How are these debates deepened and broadened when they also take account of the interaction between marginalized and privileged social identities embedded in these inequalities? How do these intersections play out in relation to states, markets and community for different people and places across the world? And how can ideas and experiences that help forge solidarities across these differences contribute to ‘leaving no one behind’ in any future progress? The conference believes that feminist economics has a special contribution to make to an interdisciplinary scholarship on this challenging topic because of its ability to address economic questions through a range of different disciplines and methodologies.

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.


  • Abstracts (400 words max.) must be submitted online via the IAFFE website (www.iaffe.org) beginning December 1, 2018.
  • 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.

IAFFE is committed to seeking and providing travel funds to support our members who want to attend and participate in the Annual Conference and Pre-Conference Workshop but are unable due to a lack of funding.  Unfortuantely we do not have enough funding to support everyone who needs it.  IAFFE prioritizes conference participants from the Global South and young scholars for travel support. The maximum funding is $2,000 USD, but most, if not all, will be less, depending upon funds available. We hope to notify all applicants of the status of the travel grant application by April 15, some will be sooner.  Please only ask for the maximum that you need so we can support as many applicants as possible.

You will need the following information prior to completing your application:

  • What is the total of your estimated expenses to attend the conference, including the conference registration fee and the conference dinner ($45 USD), if you are planning to attend?
  • What is the MINIMUM amount of funding that you are requesting to enable your attendance at the conference?  (The maximum minimum is $2,000 USD.)
  • What is your PREFERRED amount of funding support to enable your attendance at the conference? (No more than $2,000 USD.)

We are no longer accepting travel grant applications.
