ROUNDTABLE EVENT

Gender, Activism and Subjectivity in Contention and Conflict: A Comparative Perspective

25th November 2019

15:00 – 17:00

By the Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction

Dublin City University

Glasnevin Campus

The Dublin City University's Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction (IICRR) would like to invite you to attend a roundtable discussion addressing the topics of Gender, Activism and Subjectivity in Contention and Conflict. Taking stock from the events of the 2010-11 Arab Uprisings, scholars and activists join together to explore the various ways in which gender identities and subjectivities are transformed as a result of individual and collective engagement in contentious politics, activism and conflict. Acknowledging that identities and activism cannot be observed outside of context but must be understood as responses to local power frameworks and dynamics, the roundtable brings together a pool of renowned international scholars working on Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, UK and Northern Ireland, to share and compare experiences from a variety of local and regional perspective. Together, the scholars investigate how gender identities and subjectivities are shaped by their environments and by the involvement in contentious politics, revolutionary upheavals and conflicts, as well as by broader processes such as state modernization, state feminism, top-down liberal reforms, neoliberal policies, among the rest.
