「性別化的變遷:女性主義知識生產與跨國行動參與」國際學術研討會(10月28-31日)系列活動

Soft Launching for International Conference of Gendering Transformations: Feminist Knowledge Production and Trans/national Activist Engagement (October 28-31)

 

The National Central Library is proudly to host the Roundtable Discussion “Gendered Engagements with the Covid-19 Pandemic” with Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS) and Taiwanese Feminist Scholars Association on 7:00-9:00 PM, 15th October, 2021. As we can see from around the world, many people or activist groups have come forward in helping those who are affected by the pandemic in various ways, including providing food and temporary shelter, sharing mask-making skills, and so on. These actions take place to amend for the government’s lack of a comprehensive plan in dealing with such large-scale disaster, but also provide immediate relief to the people in need. These actions need to be recognized, recorded, and analyzed for future references. We invite you to join this online roundtable discussion on these engagements, ranging from raising critical discourses, taking actions, and their impacts on Covid-19 governance, and more.

Updates from Gendering Transformations Conference 2021

Dear paper presenters:

 We hope this e-mail finds you well.

 For your information, we have reached a difficult decision that the Gendering Transformations Conference will go fully virtually without any physical attendance. Although the pandemic of COVID-19 in Taiwan is rather controlled lately, there are still many restrictions for indoor activity in Taipei. And we certainly could not loosen up ourselves and take it lightly. Now we plan to proceed with the Conference from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Copenhagen time), which is 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM in Taipei time from October 28-31. If you have a second thought not to participate in this virtual Conference, please kindly inform us before August 27. We should also remind you that the deadline for your submission of the following one: full paper, longer abstract (exceeding 800 words) or PPT is September 30.

 Before the official four half-day Conference, there will be an online roundtable discussion on “Women’s Engagements with the Covid-19 Pandemic” as a warm-up activity on October 15 for the general public of the inaugural event. We would like to invite you to join this roundtable discussion on how women or feminist activist groups from the Nordic countries and Taiwan engage with the pandemic. Please wait for the official announcement of this roundtable discussion and the formal Conference agenda next month. Welcome to the digital brand new world!

 

Best regards,

Conference Committee

Notification of paper acceptance and Postponement of event

Dear scholars,

We are pleased to inform you that your paper based on your abstract has been accepted by the Review Committee of the Gendering Transformations: Feminist Knowledge Production and Trans/national Activist Engagement International Conference.  However, in light of the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the conference organizers have decided to postpone the event to 2021.

It was a very difficult decision to make.  The rescheduled dates, most likely in October next year, will be announced by the end of June, 2020.

During this challenging time, we appreciate your understanding and support.  We will keep you informed of further developments.  Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Sincerely yours,

Conference Committee,

Gendering Transformations: Feminist Knowledge Production and Trans/national Activist Engagement

Review outcome will be announced on May 20, 2020.

Dear authors 

 

Thank you very much for submitting your paper to the "Gendering Transformations: Feminist Knowledge Production and Trans/national Activist Engagement" International Conference.  Due to the large number of submissions, it takes a longer time than expected for the Review Committee to finalize the results.  We are working to accelerate the review process, and the final outcome will be announced by Wednesday, 20th of May.

We regret any inconvenience caused by this unexpected change, and very much appreciate the great effort you put into this event and your kind understanding of this difficult situation.

In a very short period of time, the coronavirus disease has grown into a global pandemic, and all are under its impact.  Though it is hard to predict the future development, we will continue to keep an eye on the virus situation.  We have confidence that the Conference will be held in Taiwan.  The Committee has also come up with an idea to maybe include gender-and-COVID-19 related issues.  We will also monitor COVID-19 developments closely.

Once again, thank you for your submission.  Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us.  

Best regards,


Conference Committee,
