GWO International Workshop Series `Gender Renewals', June 23-24th, 2011 VU University, Amsterdam

The international workshop 'Gender Renewals' sponsored by the journal Gender, Work & Organization will be held at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam June 23-24, 2011. Many renowned gender scholars will be attending.
Patrizia Zanoni, Elke Valgaeren and Lieve Lembrechts will present a paper on women's experience of pregnancy-related discrimination at work drawing on psychological contract theory and analyzing recent Belgian qualitative data. 
Patrizia Zanoni will also participate in a panel discussion organized by Yvonne Benschop and Marieke van den Brink on the future of gender and diversity research in contemporary universities. Are ways to move forward tied to linking up with other, broader themes in management and organization? Or should we look for other ways to renew gender perspectives? The panel will address the do's and don'ts of institutionalizing gender research in academia. A key question for the panel pertains to how do researchers and research groups ensure resources in competition with other researchers that may be perceived as more mainstream in the management and organization field.
