The Euro-Mediterranean Academic and Scientific Network on Gender and Women (RUSEMEG) is organizing a conference titled "Stories and woes of women in the Euro-Mediterranean region: accounts, bodies, violence, money" on the occasion of the International Congress of Feminist Research in the Francophonie (CIRFF2018), which will be held next August at the Paris Nanterre University. Speakers from Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Spain, and France will reflect on the link between the production of social norms and resistance to hegemonic models, based on field, bibliographic and textual research.
The conference will be divided into 4 sessions:
On August 28, starting at 9AM, sessions 1 and 2 will be devoted to the theme "Gender, narratives and bodies: transversal debates". On August 29, also at 9AM, session 3 will deal with the topic "Women and violence", and at 10:40 session 4 will address "Women’s money".
Researchers and professors from 4 universities will be mobilized, as well as 9 PhD students who will meet during a doctoral workshop to present their topics and research methods on Friday, August 31 from 9AM to 10:20AM, and then from 10:40AM to 12AM.
A round table organized by the RUSEMEG will also take place, on August 27 from 2PM to 3:20PM, on the theme "On democracy, from north to south" and will address -in one session- the topics "On democracy"; "Voices of African Women"; "Democratic learning in Tunisia, between inheritances and necessities".
