Topics: The organizer invites abstract submissions for the conference from scholars at all career stages whose research addresses one or more of the following sub-themes:

1) The paradox of CHANGE: rapid “non-gendered”  change, and gender inertia in academic and scientific organizations; gendering “non-gendered” change processes; gatekeepers  promoting  and  preventing  change. 

2)  The  paradox  of  EXCELLENCE:  gendering  new  and  emerging stratifications  of  academic  and  scientific  organizations,  disciplines  and  professions;  gender  impact  of  different excellence  programmes  and  initiatives;  critical  policy  analyses  of  excellence  promotion. 

3)  The  paradox  of INTERVENTIONS: gender dynamics of gender equality promotion, resistance and change in academic and scientific
settings; gender equality change agents in science and academia; gender fatigue; gender impacts of seemingly non-gendered interventions such as reforms in governance, appointment, evaluation, funding or salary systems.
