Venue: University of Salzburg
Extended submission deadline: 20 January 2019
The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of Salzburg is happy to announce the call for papers for its 2019 Salzburg Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty. The workshop will be held at the University of Salzburg on 27 & 28 June 2019 and focus on the topic of "Gender and Poverty". There is no conference fee. Coffee breaks and two lunches will be covered by the CEPR. Due to additional external funding the CEPR can now offer to pay for two nights of accomodation in Salzburg. Unfortunately we cannot offer any subsidy for travel costs.
The invited speaker for this workshop is Serene J. Khader (Brooklyn College & CUNY Graduate Center).
We invite scholars at all career stages to submit papers related to the workshop topic of "Gender and Poverty". Possible topics for papers are, among others, the "feminization" of (global) poverty; gender roles, norms and practices and how they relate to poverty; the intersection of disadvantages based, among others, on race, gender, sex, health, age, and disability; the nexus of education, gender and poverty; the relation of (sexual) violence and poverty; patriarchy and poverty; sexuality, procreation and poverty; anti-poverty policies and gender; the blaming and shaming of poor mothers as "bad" mothers; the "black box" of the household in poverty concepts and research; gender-sensitive poverty research and measurement; gender and the socio-spatiality of poverty (e.g. rural, urban).
The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will be given a slot of 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion). Draft papers are shared in advance and speakers can focus on the key points of their papers in the oral presentation. Selected papers will be published a volume on the workshop topic in the Springer Book Series Philosophy and Poverty.
If you are interested in participating please submit an extended abstract of 750 words ready for blind review viathe submission form on the workshop website (https://www.workshop-poverty-philosophy.org/).
Deadline for submissions is 20 January 20, and decisions will be communicated within four weeks. It is expected that draft versions of the papers are shared two weeks before the workshop.
