Call for papers

AGEW invites the submission of research papers on any topic on gender economics.

Full papers or extended abstracts (minimum 1500 words) can be submitted to AGEW2019@rmit.edu.au. The call for papers for AGEW2019 was announced on Monday 11 June 2018 and submissions closed on Friday 31 August 2018. All authors who made a submission will be notified of the Selection Committee’s decision between 17-28 September 2018. The preliminary program will be announced in early October 2018.

Papers will be selected on the basis of (1) the demonstration of a high standard of methodological rigour and comprehensive understanding of the topic of inquiry and (2) the application of an economic framework in which gender is a core element of the analysis. Papers should also demonstrate real world relevance and applicability to addressing issues of social and/or economic concern.

The scope of topics can include (but is not limited to) labour and workplace organisation, behavioural insights, education and human capital, family and care responsibilities, household and interpersonal dynamics, mental and physical health and safety, economic growth, poverty and economic development, measures of inequality, housing, superannuation and retirement, taxation and transfer policy, and the evaluation of policy interventions. Both applied and theoretical papers are invited.

To make the most of the workshop environment, papers can be at working paper stage or near completion, or can be a recently-published paper which makes a fresh contribution to the literature. Analytical policy papers that meet high standards of methodological rigour will also be considered.

The workshop’s focus on gender economics does not necessarily mean a focus on women: it is increasingly clear that improving outcomes for women and achieving gender equality in society entails identifying the ways that males are impeded from fully engaging in aspects of economic activity that are traditionally female roles, such as carer roles and female-dominated vocations. We aspire for these considerations to be reflected in the program of workshop papers and the symposium discussion.

Each research paper will be assigned a discussant who will provide the presenter with constructive suggestions for improvement to the paper.

Best Student Paper Prize

A prize to the Best Student Paper will be awarded at AGEW2019. Authors are eligible for this award if their paper is chiefly based on research that they conducted as an undergraduate or postgraduate university student. Candidates should be a current student or have graduated no longer than two years ago.

If you would like to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award at AGEW2019, please indicate this in your email submission and provide confirmation of your eligibility.
