Conference (In German and English)
In the European Union, the politics of gender and equality have been considered as a success story for a few decades. The women’s movement and institutional women’s studies had their part in this. Nowadays, right-wing populist movements spread all over Europe and mobilize against democratic institutions and especially against gender politics and sexual self-determination. Once claimed and achieved rights and practices – for example in the field of sexuality and reproduction – are questioned again.
We want to discuss the following questions with experts from different European countries from politics, science and the field: How does the mobilization of right-wing populists influence Europe and the politics of the EU? Which historical and ideological sources does contemporary anti-feminism refer to? Who are the political actors? Which concrete rights are in danger? Which are the flaws of the policy of equality that now can be abused by right-wing populist forces? And should this phase of transition not as well be used to rethink and establish a new kind of emancipatory, feminist politics?
The conference is held in English and German and simultaneous translation is offered.
Fee (for drinks and lunch) Euro 20,00, reduced price Euro 10,00. Free entry on the Friday evening session.
