Call for papers
All too often, we refer to the topic of mutual uncertainty in which we
lived, "back to back" in words of José Saramago, Spain and Portugal, one
trying to attract European attention over the Pyrenees, the other with eyes
wide-open to the sea, waiting for new islands to be discovered. Although in
recent years the normative provisions approved on gender equality in the
different spheres of social and labour life are quite similar in both
countries, in the field of gender studies, Spain and Portugal have followed
different paths regarding centers and institutes for studies of women and
gender in universities. Only in the last decades, on many occasions
supported by the European Union's border cooperation initiatives, we
started to carry out professional exchanges, inter-university teaching
proposals and collaborative research projects. In university exchanges, the
European higher education area has opened up new possibilities (dual
qualification, interuniversity postgraduate courses, etc.) which, together
with the increase in joint investigations and the flow of exchange of
professional experiences, place us before the historical opportunity of
turning ignorance into fruitful collaboration.

Committed to fostering mutual knowledge and exchange of experiences and
points of view between Portuguese and Spanish teachers, *"Teresa Andrés"
Research Group on Information and Society (GIR-TAIS)* and the *Women's
Studies Center of the University of Salamanca (CEMUSA)* organize a seminar
on* "Women researchers and research on women in Iberian universities"*, to
be held on *September 27 and 28, 2018*, in the Faculty of Translation and
Library Science of Salamanca.
The seminar will consist of presentations, round tables and free
communication sessions, and the minutes of the meeting will be published
and printed in the form of monography by UCOPress, the editorial of the
University of Córdoba.

The *main themes* will be as follows:
- Situation of women researchers in the universities of the Iberian
Peninsula (aspects that hinder their professional promotion, equality
plans, etc.)
- Professional trajectories and vital experiences of women (cis and
transsexuals) and people of non-binary gender in Iberian universities.
- Gender binarism, feminism and women's studies: conceptual tensions and
academic consequences.
- Critical analysis of the systems of evaluation and scientific production
of Spain and Portugal from a gender perspective.
   - Scientific productions and channels who diffuse studies on women in
Iberian universities.
- Relation between the visibility and the impact of journals specialized in
gender studies and the evaluation and promotion of university professors.

Works are admitted in the main official languages of the Iberian Peninsula
(Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Euskara and Galician) or in English. The
conceptual works or theoretical reflection can be presented by anyone,
regardless of their geographical origin. The empirical, descriptive or
other case studies must necessarily refer to the geographic environment of
the Iberian Peninsula.

Those interested in submitting a paper must submit the abstract with the
proposal through the "documents" tool that appears on the seminar website
<http://eventum.usal.es/go/mujeresinvestigadoras>, until Sunday, *January
28, 2018*, according to the following specifications:
- Thematic of the abstract
- Title of the proposal
- Type of proposal
- A Summary with up to 500 words
- An attachment file with the data already mentioned, in .doc format, which
must also include a curricular profile of the proposal's authors and
contact information (address, phone number and e-mail)
- Name of the author(s)
- Institutional affiliation of the author(s)

The proposals will be evaluated by a scientific committee made up of
experts in the themes of the seminar. The results will be communicated
on *February
18, 2018* individually to its authors. All persons whose papers have been
selected must send their full works before Wednesday, *May 20, 2018*.
