Co-organised by ATGENDER and the Graduate Gender Programmeat Utrecht University, the 2016 edition of the ATGENDER Spring Conference is dedicated to spaces of feminist learning & teaching. The focus of the conference is on teaching and learning in queer and gender studies’ classrooms, broadly understood as spaces inside and outside the university, traversed by multiple urgencies and agendas, as well as informed by complex negotiations at personal, social, economic and political levels.

The conference wants to stimulate active and reciprocal exchanges between researchers, activists, students, educators, graduates and those professionally engaged with gender studies and feminist research. We want to address issues related to learning and teaching of gender in many possible contexts. We invite those interested in feminist debates and practices of teaching gender in and beyond Europe to join us in a series of exciting panels, workshops and other events. The conference experience will be deepened by free training sessions, a wild social programme, and creative mind/body activities in the city of Utrecht.
