Excellence and Gender Equality: Critical Perspectives on Gender and Knowledge in the Humanities and Social Sciences:

Excellence and Gender Equality: Critical Perspectives on Gender and Knowledge in the Humanities and Social Sciences:

26-28 June 2019: Australian National University, Canberra, ANU Gender Institute Signature Event

This conference aims to reshape current approaches to gender inequality in academia, and shifs the attention that has often been paid primarily to women in STEM to issues in HASS disciplines. By challenging ‘gender-neutral’ models of knowledge and asking how gender intersects with judgments of value, authority and excellence, it will investigate the increasingly accepted claim that genuine research excellence requires an equity component.
