Together with my colleague Dr Sian Hawthorne I am organising an exciting workshop-conference on the theme Catachreses? ‘Gender’, ‘Religion’ and ‘Postcoloniality’. Through this workshop we aim to stimulate the necessary engagement in the field of Religion and Gender with the critical questions and challenges raised by postcolonialiality.
The workshop will take place on 17-19 December at SOAS in London and is hosted by the SOAS Centre for Gender and Religions Research. The event is part of the international research and networking project ‘Interdisciplinary Innovations in the Study of Religion and Gender: Postcolonial, Post-secular and Queer Perspectives’, a project initiated by the Chair of Religion and Gender at Utrecht University and funded by the Netherlands Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO).
