The nomination committee for the ATGENDER elections in 2013 consists of Sara Goodman, Sabine Grenz and Harriet Silius. Sveva Magaraggia represents the board and Paulina Bolek represents the secretariat in the nomination committee. The candidates that stand for election are presented below.
Members may cast their vote for the Board either in person at the General Assembly or on the website. Votes on the website are accepted until one day before the General Assembly. Votes may not be cast by proxies, neither concerning elections, nor concerning other ATGENDER matters. The candidates that receive at least 50% of the votes are elected. In case of a tie between the two candidates that have got the lowest amount of votes, a second nominal ballot will be voted on at the General Assembly in order to determine which of those candidates will be elected to the Board.

The ATGENDER board would like to encourage you to take part in the upcoming Second GENDER Summit in Brussels (http://www.gender-summit.eu/).
On November 29-30, there will be a big event on Gender in research, organized by the European Parliament. This is the 'second' Gender Summit' (the first one was attended by ATGENDER-representative, and ATGENDER signed the Manifesto) and it looks as if this will attract many different stakeholders (politicians from EP; policy makers from EU-DG on research; decision makers on funding for European research; universities). The focus of the event seems to be on raising the number of women in research positions in Europe, but there is also some attention to the 'Gender-dimension' in research. On both accounts this event will be interesting to ATGENDER members.
The ATGENDER board is working to make ATGENDER visible and to have an impact on the outcomes. We will propose to organize a meeting (panel/workshop/social event) on teaching the 'gender dimension' in research. Here ATGENDER will present the Tuning Gender Studies Brochure, Reference Points for Design and Delivery of Degree Programmes in Gender Studies. This will help universities and research funders see the importance of teaching and research in Gender Studies.
A new title in the “Teaching with Gender” series – as continued under the auspices of ATGENDER – was launched during the 8th European Feminist Research Conference in Budapest, on 17 May 2012. The book, Teaching “Race” with a Gendered Edge, edited by Brigitte Hipfl and Kristin Loftsdóttir was introduced by Krisztina Kós, Director of the Central European University Press. The volume is not only the first ATGENDER teaching publication but also is the first one produced in cooperation with the Central European University Press.

Besides ATGENDER’s new teaching series title, the Routledge book series Advances in Feminist Studies and Intersectionality was presented at the same event. Andrea Pető, Co-President of ATGENDER and member of the Routledge Editorial group discussed with conference participants the series’ aim and various titles so far published.
Teaching “Race” with a Gendered Edge responds to the need to approach the idea of race from a feminist perspective. This collection of essays aims to broaden our understanding of both race and gender by highlighting the intersections and intertwinedness of race, gender, and other axes of inequality. The book also points to the importance of taking colonial legacies into account when it comes to the understanding of contemporary forms of racisms. In an increasingly globalised and interconnected world this perspective is essential for understanding the dynamics of identity politics but also for pointing towards possible ways of intervention and change.
The essays in the book discuss historically contextualised examples of the intersections of race and gender from different localities in Europe and beyond and provide readers with a rich body of resources and teaching material.
Full PDF will be available for download in late November 2012
The volume is produced in cooperation with the Central European University Press.
The book series Teaching with Gender, started by ATHENA is now sponsored by ATGENDER.
The series has two major aims: to foster European cooperation in the field of gender studies and to promote teaching in the field of gender studies. ATGENDER members are entitled to publishing of approved, peer-reviewed manuscripts.
We invite prospective volume editors to submit inspiring manuscript proposals that present innovative feminist work, partly developed from the scholarly exchange at the 8th European Feminist Research Conference.
For those considering submitting a proposal, the editorial board recommends that the ATGENDER infrastructure be made use of, as means to further integrate their ideas with the European Network. (The length of the volume should be 300.000-350.000 characters including space. It is up to the volume editors to set the lengths of the individual chapters, on the basis of the number of contributions in the proposed volume.)
Regarding the submission deadline contact the series editors:
