Rethinking knowledge regimes
“Rethinking Knowledge Regimes: Solidarities and Contestations”seeks to bring together the broad and interdisciplinary field that constitutes gender studies in Sweden today. It addresses the current societal challenges at both local and global levels and enquires about how gender studies can contribute to analysing the major events in the contemporary world.
Feminist and other critical scholars have contributed to rethinking knowledge regimes and diversifying knowledge production in a variety of ways. The g19 conference invites the participants to initiate a broad rethinking of knowledge regimes and institutions, encompassing a variety of issues and research fields. We also invite presentations on rethinking of academic life, epistemological asymmetries and challenges and pre-conditions for gender studies.
