NeuroGenderings V
2 Mar through 6 Mar 2020 in Leiden, Netherlands

The Neurogenderings Network was selected to held a one-week workshop from 2 Mar through 6 Mar  at Lorentz Center in Leiden, Netherlands. The Workshop is discussing the issue of Intersectional Analysis of the Sexed/Gendered Brain. With the keynote speakers Deboleena Roy, Ashley Baccus-Clark, Laverne Camille Melón.
Organized by: Katherine Bryant (Nijmegen, The Netherlands), Hannah Fitsch (Berlin, Germany), Anelis Kaiser (Freiburg, Germany), Annelies Kleinherenbrink (Tilburg, The Netherlands), Mal Pool (Berlin, Germany).
1) The conference aimed to advance interdisciplinary conversations surrounding sex/gender and the brain by integrating the notion of intersectionality more deeply into the field.
2) This conference invoked intersectionality as an analytic framework for examining how various social identities, including race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability status are interwoven and impact each other.

In March 2016 NG4 // NeuroGenderings IV took place at Barnard College, New York City. Topic of the Meeting was ‘evidence’. The meeting challenged the question of collaborations within the group, where members have radically different orientations towards data were productively discussed.

From 8-10 May 2014 NeuroGenderings III – The 1st international Dissensus Conference on brain and gender was held in cooperation with the network NeuroGenderings, the Laboratory of Sociology (LabSo) and the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lausanne.

In September 2012 NeuroCultures — NeuroGenderings II was organized in Vienna in order to continue the critical engagement with neuroscience and particularly to address processes of gendering in today’s rapidly emerging “neurocultures.”

In March 2010, the first conference NeuroGenderings: Critical Studies of the Sexed Brain was held in Uppsala (Sweden). It brought together experts from different disciplines to identify theoretical and methodological strategies for social scientists, cultural scientists and neuroscientists to engage with radical, intersectional feminist and queer studies of the brain.
