The 2nd  International Gender for Excellence in Research Conference will be held on 10-11 June 2023 in Istanbul, Turkey. It encourages Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to present their recent research, demonstrate how they have integrated a sex/gender dimension in this work, and reflect on the value of integrating this perspective into their research projects. The conference is being hosted by the Gender and Women’s Studies Research Center at Kadir Has University (GWSRC-KHAS) in Turkey and three internationally leading partners in this area: University of Lund (Sweden), University of Genoa (Italy) and Technological University Dublin (Ireland) under the European Union funded GenderEx project**.

This conference will create a platform for ESRs to share their research with a wider audience, network with other early career researchers and established scholars and receive feedback on their work. Non-academic stakeholders will be invited to discuss explicit societal examples and market needs where the gender+ dimension creates an impact. 

CONFERENCE TOPICS

 

The conference is accepting papers and posters from all disciplines.  The papers presented must demonstrate the integration of a Sex and Gender Dimension in its content. Intersectional and gender+ approaches are particularly welcomed.

Submitted abstracts will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee composed of GenderEX project partners. The evaluation process consists of an anonymous peer review by committee members.

Submission Guidelines

Abstracts should consist of a title, 300-500 words and up to five keywords.

We accept files in .docx/.doc/.pdf/Latex Pdf format – as per the call for papers schedule. Papers should be thoroughly checked and proofread before submission. After you have submitted your paper, you are unable to make any changes to it during the refereeing process—although if accepted, you will have a chance to make minor revisions after refereeing and before the final submission of your paper.
