Workshop on Gender Development by Delhi University [Feb 11-16]: Apply by Jan 3: Expired

About

The Women Studies and Development Centre (WSDC) of the University of Delhi, in collaboration with Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST) endeavour in this workshop to explore gender development through academic and activists’ engagement. At the heart of asymmetry of power in gender relations lies the material base of social construction of genders. Control of resources, and cultural bias in favour of one gender, have lead to multivariate inequalities that get further entrenched in practice.

If development policies remain oblivious to this uneven terrain to say the least, it would only lead to skewed development and reinforce pervading gender inequalities. There is an urgent need for discussion and research in all subject disciplines to address this important area.

The focus of the workshop is to introduce and discuss frameworks of analysis of gender and
development, include current issues especially women’s paid and unpaid work in all its
manifestations. Discussions around political economy; state interventions, empowerment and culture would be the running themes across sessions.
