Call for Papers: ESIL Conference 2016

Feminism and International Law Interest Group

 ESIL Annual Conference, Riga, 8-10 September 2016

 The Gendered Imaginaries of Crisis in International Law

 Agora Proposal: Call for Papers

 The ESIL Feminism and International Law interest group are calling for papers for a bilingual roundtable (agora) for the ESIL Annual Conference 2016 (Riga). This roundtable seeks to convene various perspectives on the ways current crisis-ridden international law, or utopian crisis-free international law, thrive on gendered narratives, as well as how the contributions feminist approaches can offer enlarged critical engagement with the status quo of international law and its focus on crisis. Set up as a roundtable rather than a traditional panel, the agora aims at providing an interactive platform for feminist and/or gender-related engagement with the past, present and future of international law within and without its recurrent crises. Innovative approaches such as research on visual images as well as interdisciplinary reflections uncovering the powerful discursive complex resulting from the interaction between media coverage and international institutions’ communication politics and their impact on the gendered narratives of international law are welcomed. Contributions in French are strongly encouraged. More details and submission information are here.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE 15 JANUARY 2016
