TitelThe Future of Diversity? Approaches, Intersections, Innovations
BeschreibungThe Winter School will take place from 14.-15. January 2016 at the Centre For Gender and Diversity Research, University Tübingen.

Zentrum für Gender - und Diversitätsforschung, Universität Tübingen

Call for Paper: Deadline: 1. October 2015

The newly founded Institute for Gender and Diversity Research at the University of Tübingen invites young scholars to submit their ideas about ‘diversity’. Our Winter School ‘The Future of Diversity? Approaches, Intersections, Innovations’ seeks to investigate the concept of ‘diversity’ from an interdisciplinary angle, taking into account different research traditions, schools of thoughts and approaches to the definition, negotiation and application of ‘diversity.’ Most of the secondary literature published on this theme is situated in the Anglo-American sphere; special attention should thus be paid to European or even German peculiarities when it comes to defining ‘diversity’.

We invite scholars of all social sciences, philosophy, gender and literary studies as well as any other scholar who engages with ideas of diversity in their research field. Our aim is to discuss diversity from an interdisciplinary angle in order to gain new insights to how the concept can be negotiated and made productive for future use.

Contributions may address, but are in no ways limited to, the following topics:

- What is ‘diversity’? Definitions of a slippery concept.
- Applications of ‘diversity’: A catch-all concept for the humanities?
- This is where we are at the moment: Examples of productive uses of concepts of ‘Diversity’
- ‘Diverse categories’: Which groups are included in concepts of diversity, and why?
- Diversity and representation: What is a diverse community, a diverse company, a diverse piece of art…?
- Homogeneous groups? Categories of diversity.

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words and a short bio to

Deadline for abstracts: 1st October 2015.

There is no registration fee for the conference.

This conference is supported by the Institutional Strategy of the University of Tübingen (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, ZUK 63). In some cases, funding will be available for accommodation; please contact the conference organisers for further information.
