The Fifth Women in Psychology Trans-Tasman Conference
(and 22nd APS Women and Psychology Conference)

“Feminist Diversity: Praxis and Problematics in Early 21st Century Psychology”

27 - 29 September 2013
Vaughan Park Retreat Centre, Auckland, New Zealand

This conference resumes the revival of Trans-Tasman Women and Psychology conferences in Aotearoa New Zealand, following the successful meeting in Nelson in 2010.  Continuing the tradition of conferences where Australian Women have come together to network and advance research and practice relevant to women, this year we highlight praxis and our diverse perspectives on the problematic conditions in which we work, now.

Keynote addresses will be given by Professor Margaret Wetherell and Associate Professor Nicola Gavey, both from the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Associate Professor Nicola Gavey

Biography:
Nicola Gavey is based in the School of Psychology at The University of Auckland, New Zealand. Her research has focussed mainly on a critical analysis of the gendered dynamics of rape and (hetero)sexual coercion, and the implications for sexual violence prevention. She has published widely in this area, as well as on a number of other issues where gender, power and sexuality intersect and are shaped by sociocultural norms as well as broader political and economic forces (e.g., biomedicalization of sexuality and subjectivity in relation to Viagra and antidepressants, neoliberal governance of gender through child custody disputes in the family court). She is currently collaborating on a new project looking at the issue of pornography in relation to gender and ethics. With Ginny Braun, she is Editor of the SAGE journal Feminism & Psychology.
