GENI organises a panel within the First Catalan Congress of Anthropology (Congrès Català d’Antorpologia -COCA-).


Panel 16: Nous imaginaris sobre els processos d’identificació i opressió. Problematitzacions i aproximacions crítiques al gènere, la identitat i la diversitat:


This panel addresses theoretical and ethnographic approaches that show the limits of hegemonic categorizations on gender, identity and diversity, as well as critical reflections on how the very discipline of anthropology can (re)produce hegemonies and inequalities. 


The panel is split in two Tables which will be held on Thursday 30 from 12h to 14h (Table A) and from 16h to 18h (Table B).
