AGEW2021(8-9 Feb 2021) - Call for Papers: Deadline extended

We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Australian Gender Economics Workshop, hosted by the Women in Economics Network will be held virtually from Monday the 8th – Tuesday 9th February 2021

The aim of AGEW is to foster a community of economic researchers who can collectively contribute to the evidence base needed to guide the pursuit of more gender equitable outcomes in society. AGEW2021 will include a program of research presentations, keynote speakers and a policy symposium session which will draw together insights, implications and solutions delivered by the research papers.  

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

We are pleased to announce our  Keynote Speakers:

Professor Lata Gangadharan, Joe Isaac Chair of Business and Economics at the Monash Business School and Professor in the Department of Economics.

Lata Gangadharan obtained her PhD in 1998 from the University of Southern California.

Yana Rodgers is a Professor in the Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations, and in the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, at Rutgers University. She also serves as Faculty Director of the Center for Women and Work at Rutgers.

Yana specializes in using quantitative methods and large data sets to conduct research on women's health, labor market status, and well-being. She has published over 50 articles in refereed journals, mostly in economics, along with numerous chapters, reports, and edited volumes.

Her first book, Maternal Employment and Child Health (Edward Elgar Elgar Publishing, 2011) examined the link between women's economic empowerment and children's nutritional status, and her second book, The Global Gag Rule and Women's Reproductive Health (Cambridge University Press, 2018) estimated the impact of the global gag rule on women's abortion rates around the globe.

She currently serves as an Associate Editor with the journals World Development and Feminist Economics. Yana earned her PhD in economics from Harvard University and her BA in economics from Cornell University. She is originally from the Netherlands and is a mother of three and an avid runner.



CALL FOR PAPERS 

AGEW invites the submission of research papers on any topic of gender economics. Papers should apply an economic framework, and gender should be a core element of the analysis. Papers should also demonstrate real world relevance and applicability to addressing issues of social or economic concern. Presenters of any gender are all equally very welcome to our workshop.  

We invite papers on the following themes and beyond:

  • COVID-19 and implications for gender equity
  • Behavioural and Experimental Insights
  • Labour and Workplace Organisation
  • Education and Human Capital
  • Household and Interpersonal Dynamics
  • Mental and Physical Health and Safety
 
  • Macroeconomics and Economic growth 
  • Economic Development
  • Poverty, Inequality and Disadvantage
  • Housing, Superannuation and Retirement
  • Tax and Transfer Policy
  • Evaluation of policy interventions 

Both applied and theoretical papers are invited. Analytical policy papers that meet high standards of methodological rigour will also be considered. Gender economics does not necessarily entail a focus only on women or only on binary classifications of gender. 

Submissions are currently open and will close on Sunday 15th November 2020.

Full papers or extended abstracts (min. 1500 words) can be submitted to the AGEW2021 Scientific Committee Co-Chairs Alfredo Paloyo and Silvia Mendolia by emailing your attachment to agew2021@paloyo.net. Please follow these instructions regarding the subject title and the content of your email.
