Varieties of Gender Regimes Webinar


Panel Discussions


Please note, this event will be held on Zoom webinar

This event is hosted by Sylvia Walby at the Violence and Society Centre, City, University of London, UK, and co-organised with Karen Shire at the Essen College for Gender Research, University Duisburg-Essen, Germany


This event will discuss the Special Section of Social Politics on ‘Varieties of Gender Regimes’ published in August 2020.

What are the varieties of gender regime? This event focuses on Walby’s varieties of gender regimes – domestic and public regimes; and, within the public, both neoliberal and social democratic varieties – and pathways to alternative forms. Is this model sufficient to encompass the turn to less progressive forms and multiple global regions or are further varieties needed? At stake here is the distinction between modern and premodern, public and domestic, the meaning of conservative, the concept of the family, and the theorisation of violence.
