Women’s liberation and class struggle politics
Power, discrimination and gender inequality
Gender, posthumanism and animal studies

This is not an exhaustive list and we welcome submissions from a range of areas addressing issues of gender and overlapping identities, oppressions or intersectionalities.

Please submit abstracts or outlines of your plans (250 words) for slots/papers of 20 minutes. Send abstracts to by Sunday 24th February, including your name and phone number.
