2020 ASSA Meeting


The International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE) invites members to submit panel proposals, session proposals, and individual paper submissions on any area of feminist inquiry into economic issues, including:

  • Gender and macroeconomics
  • Feminist approaches to institutional economics
  • Economic issues involving race, gender, class, and/or sexual identity
  • Intra-household dynamics and decision-making
  • Women’s land rights and asset ownership  
  • Caring labor and unpaid labor
  • Gender and economic development
  • Gender, intersectionality and the economics profession 

PLEASE NOTE We are particularly interested in high profile panels that will generate interest beyond current IAFFE members.

IAFFE also co-sponsors sessions with other organizations. We are planning for several joint sessions with the Union for Radical Political Economics (URPE) and thus particularly welcome proposals on feminist and radical political economic theory and applied analysis. A parallel call for these jointly-sponsored sessions will be issued shortly.

IAFFE also often has joint sessions with the Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE), Association for Social Economics (ASE), Association for the Study of Generosity in Economics (ASGE), Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA), and National Economics Association (NEA).
