Globalization, Gender and Development Conference

Where: Multiple Locations

Join experts in a multidisciplinary discussion of the issues and challenges facing women in a globalized world at the 2014 Globalization, Gender and Development Conference at the University of Oregon.

The insights and debates inspired by the fields of women and development (WID) and gender and development (GAD) have since been applied to subjects beyond outside the traditional domains of World Bank development interventions and governmental projects – including grassroots alternative visions of development, non-governmental organizations, sex workers’ exploitation and self-initiatives, and gendered state management of the poor and women’s responses, to name just a few. 

The 2014 Globalization, Gender and Development conference is intended to reflect on these advances as well as consider future directions.  It aims to further revitalize this field by challenging scholars to consider the ways in which transnational flows of capital, people, and information affect gendered processes and visions of development, broadly conceived.
