Feminist Theory and Gender Studies (FTGS)


Call for Nominations - FTGS Best Graduate Student Paper Award

FTGS offers an annual award for the best feminist theory and/or gender studies graduate student paper presented at the Annual ISA Conference. The award carries a stipend of $500 and comes with a peer review by the International Feminist Journal of Politics with a prospect for publication. We are currently accepting nominations for the best paper presented at the 2019 ISA Convention in Toronto. The deadline for nominations is 21 June 2019.



Time to Submit Proposals to the ISA FTGS Programme in Honolulu!

You may have seen that the call for proposals is now live and the deadline for submissions is June 1, so now is the time to start planning papers, roundtables and panel. It would be great to have some FTGS panels that specifically address the conference theme. The ISA is also accepting some specialty proposals for a limited number of innovative panels, non-English language roundtables and career courses. The deadlines for these submissions are much sooner (innovative panels are due 15 May).



Tribute to Lily Ling

At last year’s ISA meeting in San Francisco, the Feminist Theory and Gender Studies section honored Professor LHM (Lily) Ling with FTGS’s Eminent Scholar Award. Today, sadly, we mourn Professor Ling’s passing. It is a sad day for our community, and a great loss to the International Relations community as a whole. 



FTGS Book Award

The FTGS Section is happy to announce the FTGS book award! The competition was steep and spurned some very tough decisions. Thus, the committee is very pleased to make two awards this year:

Jemima Repo's The Biopolitics of Gender (Oxford, 2105)
Lauren Wilcox's Bodies of Violence (Oxford, 2014)
