Gender and Generation in the Aftermath of the Uprisings
Conference in the framwork of the EU funded project Power2Youth.
The conference explored the predicament of young women and men in and from the MENA region in contemporary times. It brought together scholars and activists with the aim to analyse the visions, desires and projects emerging in the post-uprisings contexts among youth individuals, affective communities, social and political movements and social non-movements.
These topics were approached from three crucial angles: political movements, apathy and mobility; vocabularies of change and affectivity; ‘wired communities’ and friendship.
