Workshop on Research and Practice in Gender and Development: Call for Papers
January 24, 2017
“Interrogating the Nexus of Alternative Knowledges, Evidence and Impact in GAD Research and Practice”
This DSA and Centre for Global Development (CGD) workshop is being co-organised by Birkbeck’s Jasmine Gideon, Senior Lecturer in Development Studies. Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development at IOE, will be one of the key note speakers on the day.
The workshop will examine the relationship between efforts to promote gender equality and how development is measured, and whether we are measuring what matters, or what can be measured. The workshop will also look critically at the nexus between gender, evidence and impact in development. The opportunities for feminist and participatory methodologies to shape alternative approaches to evidence, and enable alternative knowledges and/or feminisms to be revealed, will be explored.
The organisers are looking for up to 6 speakers to present additional papers. Papers from junior scholars and PhD students are particularly welcome.
Please direct all enquiries and send abstracts to Lata Narayanaswamy: L.Narayanaswamy@leeds.ac.uk before 17th February 2017
Date: 17th March 2017
Location: University of Leeds
