Conference of the Section „Politics and Gender“
in the German Political Science Association
in cooperation with the DFG Research Training Group „Contradiction Studies“ and the Research Network „Worlds of Contradiction“

On the occasion of the Section’s 30th anniversary, the 15th Speakers’ Council of the DVPW (German Political Science Association) Section “Politics and Gender” will organize the conference “Living Archives”. The conference is dedicated to the overdue appreciation of the history of intersectional feminisms in German-speaking contexts (and their transnational connections). The “Living Archives” of intersectional movement history offer a rich reservoir for emancipatory and transformative present and future politics.

Please find more information in the programme.

The section is striving to make the conference as accessible as possible and welcomes suggestions and requirements from participants and contributors. Digital participation is possible.

Additional to the conference there will be a workshop with Prof. Encarnatión Gutiérrez Rodriguez at the University of Bremen on 06/29/2024.

sustained engagement

“The history of Western philosophy can be understood as a sustained engagement with contradiction.”
