Genre et mobilités – Conférence internationale Amsterdam Juillet 2017

Ethnographies of gender & mobility 

International Conference Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam 5-7 July 2017

International Conference Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam 5-7 July 2017

Mobility has become one of the most important concepts in contemporary social sciences, capturing the idea that life is in flux. Not only is an increasing number of people moving across the world, also ideas, images, information, objects, cultures and many other things are circulating rapidly, affecting peoples lives in many different ways. Yet, mobility is not equally accessible for everyone, and being mobile is not automatically positive.

This conference focuses on the relationship between gender and (im)mobility. What does a gender lens add to our understandings of mobility and immobility? How do relationships of power, especially with regard to gender, get reconfigured in current mobility contexts? What type of new gender (and other) hierarchies, opportunities, and challenges are being created as a result of increased mobility? And what do ethnographic methods contribute to the study of gender and mobility?

The fourth LOVA International Conference offers an opportunity to discuss these and other questions, and present new research in the field of gender and mobility.
