XIII Nordic Women’s and Gender History Conference 2021

The conference theme is GENDER, POWER and DISEMPOWERMENT.The year 2021 marks the end of two decades where the Nordic countries have celebrated the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. In a Danish context, 2021, also marks the 150th anniversary of the Danish Women’s Society (Dansk Kvindesamfund).
At the XIII Nordic Women’s and Gender History Conference, we use the anniversaries as an opportunity to highlight and discuss questions of gender, power and disempowerment in all areas of society from a historical perspective.

We welcome papers addressing a broad range of issues related to the central theme, including, but not limited to:

  • how gender has both empowered and disempowered people political, legal, social, economic and cultural perspective throughout history;
  • the consequences of empowerment and disempowerment for individual lives, for groups, for understandings of gender, for culture, politics, society and much more;
  • empowerment and disempowerment as defined by something more than gender (civil status, age, social class and residence);
  • global, national, regional and/or local perspectives on empowerment and disempowerment of gender

Papers addressing theoretical, methodological and ethical dimensions of the study of power are also welcome.
