International Association for Feminist Economics annual conference | Glasgow, Scotland
June 27 - June 29
The 2019 conference theme, Solidarities and Challenges at the Intersection of Inequalities, invites scholars, practitioners and activists engaged with the field of feminist economics to bring questions of ‘identity’ and ‘place’ into one of the most important debates in the current era: rising inequalities in income and wealth across the world. How are these debates deepened and broadened when they also take account of the interaction between marginalized and privileged social identities embedded in these inequalities? How do these intersections play out in relation to states, markets and community for different people and places across the world? And how can ideas and experiences that help forge solidarities across these differences contribute to ‘leaving no one behind’ in any future progress? The conference believes that feminist economics has a special contribution to make to an interdisciplinary scholarship on this challenging topic because of its ability to address economic questions through a range of different disciplines and methodologies.
