“REPRESENTATIONS OF WOMEN IN INTERNATIONAL LAW”
Call for Papers – Deadline 11 June 2014
The European Society of International Law (ESIL) Interest Group on Feminism and International Law is calling for papers for its panel during the interest group meetings at the 10th ESIL Anniversary Conference (4th-6th Sept), to be held in Vienna, Austria, on 3 September 2014 from 2-6pm.
Following the overarching theme of the Conference, “International Law and …: Boundaries of International Law and Bridges to Other Fields and Disciplines”, we invite papers addressing the interplay between the representation of women in international law and other disciplines.
Papers may consider (but are not limited to) the following subjects:
* representation of women in international organisations;
* women as state representatives;
* dramatic and visual representations of women in situations such as armed conflict;
* stereotypes in representations of women, such as human rights victims;
* representations of ‘the other woman’ in international law;
* literary accounts of women in international law.
Please submit abstract proposal of no more than 500 words via email to Troy Lavers and Loveday Hodson (Troy.Lavers@le.ac.uk and Loveday.Hodson@le.ac.uk) by 11th June 2014.
Successful applicants will be informed by 30 June 2014. See below for further details.
In addition to the abstract, the following information must be provided on the submission:
- The author’s name and affiliation
- The author’s CV, including a list of relevant publications
- The author’s contact details
- Whether the author is an ESIL member
Papers will be selected by the co-chairs of the Interest Group (Dr. Troy Lavers and Dr Loveday Hodson) on the basis of abstracts submitted. Selection criteria are: originality of the work, links to the panel theme, and geographical representation of the speakers.
The purpose of the panel is to share cutting-edge research in specific areas of international law, to stimulate debate, and to foster contacts between participants. We welcome the sharing of ideas in progress.
In order to participate in the Interest Group panel, speakers must be members of ESIL. The membership can be formalised once abstracts have been accepted.
Unfortunately, the ESIL Interest Group on Feminism and International Law is not in a position to cover expenses for travelling and accommodation, or to waiver the ESIL conference fee.
