ESSE 15-Lyon: GSN Meeting and Activities of GSN Members

RT3: Meeting of the Gender Studies Network

New Date – 2nd September, 10.30-12.30

Co-Convenors:

* Işil Baş (Istanbul Kültür University, Turkey), isil[at-sign]boun.edu.tr

* Florence Binard (University of Paris, France), fbinard[at-sign]eila.univ-paris-diderot.fr

* Renate Haas (University of Kiel, Germany), haas[at-sign]anglistik.uni-kiel.de

* María Socorro Suárez Lafuente (University of Oviedo, Spain), lafuente[at-sign]uniovi.es

The GSN meeting is meant as a get-together of all ESSE members interested in extending a gender perspective within and from our association. It will be the fourth in a row since Kosiče. First a brief account will be given of what has been done so far (e.g. Internet presence with a Directory of Members, Gender Studies Gallery, etc.). Special focus will be on the follow-up from Brno concerning the threats to gender studies in various European countries as well as on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Then the floor will be open to all in order to articulate and discuss proposals for the near future, such as developing access to the social media and organizing online meetings and seminars, including a Gender Studies Doctoral/Young Researcher Symposium. New ideas are welcome and, if submitted in advance, can be circulated before the conference.
