Organization: Asociación Internacional para la Economia Feminista
Event: 29° Congreso Anual: "Sostenibilidad de la vida: retos en un contexto de crisis multidimensional"
Submission Deadline: March 15, 2020
Description: Actualmente, los sistemas económicos y políticos son incapaces de satisfacer las necesidades humanas y enfrentar a la vez la fragilidad de los ecosistemas, particularmente en el marco del resurgimiento de gobiernos reaccionarios. Por otra parte, nuestras sociedades se han tensado y dividido cada vez más por razones de etnia, religión, nacionalidad, genero e identidad sexual, además de que las fronteras son cada vez más excluyentes, con barreras de todo tipo. En este contexto, las mujeres enfrentan amenazas a su integridad física y a sus posibilidades de generar ingresos económicos. Por ello, sostener la vida requiere de la confluencia de sistemas económicos y políticos inclusivos y resilientes que permitan la sostenibilidad del ambiente. En ese contexto, la economía feminista ofrece perspectivas intelectuales y metodológicas para analizar el sostenimiento integral de la vida. La economía feminista se ha caracterizado por ir más allá del pensamiento económico convencional, incorporando también visiones provenientes de otras disciplinas. La organización de la economía incluye actividades, interacciones, transacciones y relaciones en hogares, empresas, comunidades y Estado. Buscamos un entendimiento integral del bienestar, en el que los ámbitos productivo y reproductivo sean visibilizados y valorados. El Congreso de la Asociación Internacional para la Economia Feminista—IAFFE 2020—acoge y da la bienvenida a investigaciones y experiencias que apliquen la perspectiva feminista en los ámbitos macro, meso y micro de la economía, así como en las problemáticas económicas locales y globales. IAFFE 2020 será un foro de debate académico que reconoce el pluralismo metodológico en la economía (definida como sistema y disciplina). ¡Les invitamos a acompañarnos en Quito!
Eligibility: Se recibirán propuestas para ponencias individuales, sesiones y mesas redondas, las cuales deben incluir un resumen de hasta 400 palabras, máximo, electrónicamente en la página web de IAFFE: www.iaffe.org. Estas se pueden presentar en inglés o en español; se asumirá que el idioma del resumen será el idioma de la presentación. L@s participantes solamente podrán presentar una ponencia y participar en una mesa redonda o si en otra sesión, en otro papel; si se propone un trabajo adicional en co-autoría, este tendrá que ser presentado por la persona co-autora. Estas restricciones aseguran que el máximo número de participantes puedan participar en el Congreso. Para más información sobre la presentación de propuestas, consultar la página web de IAFFE.
