Gender Studies Network – Directory of members

The Gender Studies Network directory of members is online now.

The directory comprises over 80 concise profiles from 18 countries. The information has been provided by the members themselves. In addition to basic data, up to five key areas of interest in the field of Gender Studies and up to five main GS publications are given. The pdf format allows detailed search. The breadth and variety of the work documented is impressive and inspiring. Readers will find many new things, e.g. specialist journals in their very domains they may not yet have heard of. The directory will certainly prove a very useful resource tool both for research and networking.

In combination with the list of “Basic Links” (cp. http://essenglish.org/gender-studies/#links) and the surveys of the volume Rewriting Academia: the Development of the Anglicist Women’s and Gender Studies of Continental Europe (2015), a unique overall view of the Anglicist Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe is possible, such as does not seem to exist for other disciplines also engaged in Women’s and Gender Studies.

ESSE13 Round Table – Gender Studies Network

ESSE13 Round Table “Creating a European Anglicists’ Gender Studies Network”

gsn-picture-esse-13Evidently, the topic was very popular, and it attracted an engaged audience. The introductory part was devoted to foundations. First, Renate Haas (University of Kiel) highlighted Gender Studies as a European discipline.

She based her argument on the recent volume Rewriting Academia: The Development of the Anglicist Women’s and Gender Studies of Continental Europe (Frankfurt: Peter Lang, 2015). In it, 25 experts give broadly contextualised surveys for their countries. Haas pointed out that European cooperation has proved crucial for the full academic recognition of Gender Studies and that a deeper European understanding of Gender Studies presents both a task and a great chance. Next, María Socorro Suárez Lafuente from the University of Oviedo characterised several landmark achievements. That some of their beginnings were modest and elementary may be an encouragement for new endeavours. Chaired by Florence Binard (Université Paris Diderot / Sorbonne Paris Cité), the second part focussed on the concrete practical measures of networking.

A registration form will be posted on this blog for those who wish to join the EGSN. The aim is to become more visible on a national and, more importantly, on a European level.

During the Galway round table, also a call for national correspondents was launched. Their main role will consist of collecting relevant information (written in English) in their respective countries. Participants from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Romania, and Spain have already volunteered. Candidates from other European countries are welcome! In addition, all EGSN members are invited to send us (Renate, María, Florence) information about CFPs, conferences, publications etc. on English Gender Studies that might interest other members.

A mailing list will be created in order to further intensify communication between EGSN members.
