How can one apply norm-critical perspectives in issues regarding funcionality and sexuality?
Activists from the Crip project (Funkisprojektet), organised by RFSL and RFSL-Stockholm, will talk about how to apply norm-critical perspectives in order to change attitudes and norms in both the LGBTQ community and the disability movement. They will talk about the different studies that have led to the project, what they do in the project and what it has meant, as well as various kinds of resistance that they have encountered.

They is also responsible for “HBTQ-hänget” – a meeting place for LGBTQ people with disabilities.

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Twelfth International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, held 26–28 July 2017 at the International Conference Center in Hiroshima, Japan.
Founded in 2006, the conference examines the nature of disciplinary practices in the study of society and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of "real world" applications of social research and theory. The conference also investigates what constitutes "science" in a social context and the connections between the social and other sciences. The focus of papers ranges from the finely grained and empirical (research practices and results exemplifying one or more disciplines) to wide-ranging multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives on knowledge and method.
We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2017 Special Focus: "Cross-Cultural and Global Research as Interdisciplinary Practice."
Deadline: Submit your proposal by December 26th, 2016

- Call for Applications: 2017-2018 Research Associate Program - Five College Women's Studies Research Center
Located in a geographic area with one of the largest concentrations of scholars dedicated to feminist scholarship and teaching in the world, the Five College Women’s Studies Research Center encourages engaged, critical feminist scholarship from diverse perspectives. To support this work, the Center established its Associates Program 25 years ago. Scholars come to the Center from around the world, seeking a supportive environment to carry out their research. Given an office with access to extensive consortium resources, associates gather regularly to discuss their research with each other and interested local faculty in a variety of settings.
Applicants should complete our online application that includes a project proposal (up to three pages in length), curriculum vitae and contact information for two professional references. Project proposals should include 1) a statement about the contribution to and significance of the project or dissertation for research and teaching in women and gender studies, 2) a detailed description of the project or dissertation and timeline, and 3) how a stay in the Five Colleges will advance the project or dissertation.
Travel, housing and living expenses are the responsibility of the associate in this unpaid residency. It is important that associates remain in residence for the duration; beyond this requirement for the facilitation of community, associates define the scope of their research program for the semester or year. The Center’s director will help identify conversation partners and resources as requested.
Deadline: February 15th, 2017
