The idea of an international marxist-feminist conference was originally brought into being, and was since then continuously organized, by the feminist section of the Berlin Institute of Critical Theory (Inkrit) around the German sociologist and philosopher Frigga Haug. It was held in Berlin for the first time in 2015, followed by an increasingly international second congress in Vienna in 2016, and the third one in Lund (Sweden) in 2018.
The 4th International Conference will be held in Bilbao (Bizkaia Aretoa), in October (15,16,17) 2020. This Confernce will be organized and funded by Transform! Europe and the University of the Basque Country, along with Iratzar Foundation, Bilbo-Barcelona Critical Theory Group (BIBA CT), Inkrit and Roxa Luxemburg Foundation and ParteHartuz, among others (which will be made public in the following months).
We welcome papers and panel proposals by activists, academics and social movemets, especifically from the feminist movement, unions, new working class associations and autonomous militant groups.
At this stage Keynote Speakers that have confirmed their participation are the following ones: Gayatri Spivak, Frigga Haug, Tithi Bhattacharya, Cinzia Arruzza, Nancy Fraser, Elsa Dorlin, Lorena Cabnal and Francesca Gargallo. Along with round tables with Keynote Speakers, we will also have a plenary session with the Feminist Movement of the Basque Country and the new working class women associations.
Call for papers: will be open up until February 25, 2020. Registration (FREE): will be open up until March 15, 2020.
