Co-Sponsored Event: mobilizing gender: Secularism, Nationalism and Remaking Europe

  • Wilder House 5811 South Kenwood Avenue Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

This is a one conference theorizing the entanglement of gender, nation, sexualities and secularism in contemporary Europe.  Why and how have these issues become so visible in eastern Europe (as early as 1989), and now in the west as well?  And what might this visibility tell us about the changing ways nation states establish their physical and metaphorical borders/ties both within Europe and beyond?

Plenary speakers: 

Éric Fassin (Université Paris 8)

Agnieszka Graff (University of Warsaw)

Sarah Green (University of Helsinki)


Full schedule will be available at Mobilizing Gender shortly


Co-sponsored by: CEERES, 3CT, Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Department of Anthropology Lichtstern Fund, France Chicago Center and Franke Institute for the Humanities
