The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of
Salzburg is happy to announce the call for papers for its 2019
Salzburg Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty. The workshop will be held
at the University of Salzburg on 27 & 28 June 2019 and focus on the
topic of "Gender and Poverty".

There is no conference fee. Coffee breaks and two lunches will be
covered by the CEPR. Due to additional external funding the CEPR can
now offer to pay for two nights of accommodation in Salzburg.
Unfortunately we cannot offer any subsidy for travel costs.

The invited speaker for this workshop is Serene J. Khader (Brooklyn
College & CUNY Graduate Center).

We invite scholars at all career stages to submit papers related to
the workshop topic of "Gender and Poverty". Possible topics for papers
are, among others, the "feminization" of (global) poverty; gender
roles, norms and practices and how they relate to poverty; the
intersection of disadvantages based, among others, on race, gender,
sex, health, age, and disability; the nexus of education, gender and
poverty; the relation of (sexual) violence and poverty; patriarchy and
poverty; sexuality, procreation and poverty; anti-poverty policies and
gender; the blaming and shaming of poor mothers as "bad" mothers; the
"black box" of the household in poverty concepts and research;
gender-sensitive poverty research and measurement; gender and the
socio-spatiality of poverty (e.g. rural, urban).

The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will be given a
slot of 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes
for discussion). Draft papers are shared in advance and speakers can
focus on the key points of their papers in the oral presentation.

Selected papers will be published a volume on the workshop topic in
the Springer Book Series Philosophy and Poverty.

If you are interested in participating please submit an extended
abstract of 750 words ready for blind review viathe  submission form
on the workshop website
(https://www.workshop-poverty-philosophy.org/). Deadline for
submissions is January 20, and decisions will be communicated
within four weeks. It is expected that draft versions of the papers
are shared two weeks before the workshop.
