This two-day conference will provide a forum for international researchers to share, review and debate new empirical and theoretical developments in the field of gender and nationalism.

This two-day conference will provide a forum for international researchers to share, review and debate new empirical and theoretical developments in the field of gender and nationalism. 

Research in the field of gender and nationalism has emerged as an increasingly important strand of contemporary political and historical studies, whilst its profile within sociology remains limited. Though there is increasing recognition of the inherently gendered nature of nationalism as an ideology and practice, our social scientific understanding of gendered nationalisms remains partial, lacking a substantial engagement with the complex interplays between nationalism (in all its forms) and the gendered lifeworlds of its supporters.

Taking important new research in the field of women's involvement in, and support for, nationalist movements in the contemporary UK as its launching point (British Academy/Leverhulme Trust SG121452 – Women in nationalist Movements in the UK ), the conference will explore the gendered identities, meanings, relations, practices and structures associated with contemporary nationalist movements, and in their variable relationships to their male and female activists and supporters.

The conference will address the following aims:

  • To showcase the latest empirical international research in the field of gender and nationalism
  • To apply and evaluate established and new theoretical and conceptual developments in the light of this empirical research
  • To provide a forum for social scientific debate, networking, collaboration and the formulation of new directions for research

Plenary Speakers

  • Nira Yuval-Davis
  • Floya Anthias
  • Kathleen Blee
  • Jon Mulholland, Nicola Montagna and Erin Sanders-McDonagh
