Inaugural general meeting

The steering committee behind the Sandbjerg Symposium has the experience of organising annual conferences on gender and love. Committee member, PhD Dikmen Yakali Camoglu co-organised and led these conferences at Mansfield College, Oxford from 2011 to 2015 under the auspices of Inter-Disciplinary.Net, founded by D.Phil. Rob Fisher. However, with a shift in gender studies from constructivism toward posthuman and new materialist considerations, the committee wants to establish an international society that can frame a processual rethinking of gender and love many years ahead that also allows for such rethinking to take place in shifting settings. A secondary purpose with the symposium is therefore to attract members to the International Society for the Study of Gender and Love, to be founded officially during the symposium at an inaugural general meeting. Suggestions for topics to be discussed at the inaugural general meeting should be sent to Marianne Schleicher at ms@cas.au.dk no later than the 1st of October 2017.
