Past and present changes in gender dynamics
Call for Papers
On March 7, 2022, Amnesty International launched an alarm regarding the worldwide “grave erosion of rights” and “global assault on women’s and girls’ dignity” in the wake of events in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, the US, Turkey, and Iran in 2021 and 2022. The UN Working Group has expressed similar concerns, noting that economic crisis, austerity measures, and cultural and religious conservatism has brought about a backlash against gender equality. This backlash has a major impact on people living in poverty and with lower socio-economic status, LGBTIQ+ communities, migrants, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities, exacerbating pre-existing discrimination. To promote a better awareness of current phenomena, LEA 12 (2023) proposes to investigate gender relationships from the perspective of literary, linguistic, and philological studies.
The call is open until May 8, 2023
