Abstract: The Gender and States of Emergency conference will gather a range of perspectives on how gender, in relation to racial, sexual, bodily and economic dimensions, is vital to investigating the impact of war, natural disasters, and political upheavals. At the same time, "states of emergency" is not confined to discussions of catastrophic events; trauma exists in the everyday. In addition, some political actors work to define a particular moment as a state of emergency in order to mobilize publics, re-define citizenship or utilize national machinery. Participants will explore the issue of states of emergency from a variety of angles, not only states in (economic, political or environmental) emergency, but what it means to be in a state of crisis as a specifically situated woman. Participants will examine the nexus of material and affective "states" of crisis, considering the difference that gender makes in natural disasters, war, public policy, institutions and national discourse about citizenship and belonging.
