The 4th Christina Conference on Gender Studies Gender, Nature and Culture
Helsinki, Finland 20.-22. May 2010

Registration for the 4th Christina Conference on Gender Studies is now open. For more information, please visit

The 4th Christina conference explores the complex connections among gender, nature and culture. Recent research has increasingly viewed nature and culture as inherently entangled and inseparable, suggesting that nature is often understood through discourses of gender and, conversely, that gender is made sense of through historically contingent assumptions about nature. Building on this growing body of scholarship, the conference asks how this mutual intertwining of nature, culture and gender has been theorized, represented and experienced in the past as well as the present. The conference aims to be a meeting point for researchers from different disciplines.
