IAFFE-L provides an open forum for dialogue and debate about feminist economic issues and perspectives. The list aims to encourage discussions on subjects that are particularly pertinent to feminist economics, and postings should be directly focused on feminist economic concerns, such as:

  • feminist economic perspectives on economic theory, methodology, and policy
  • cross-disciplinary and cross-country perspectives on feminist economic concerns
  • new ideas and research in feminist economics
  • feminist economic discussions of current economic policy issues
  • feminist pedagogy and economic teaching
  • feminist perspectives on the historical and contemporary construction of economics
  • the structure of economics profession in relation to concerns about gender and race
  • research in other fields that may provide insight into feminist economic concerns
  • information on mentoring, research grants, job opportunities, and calls for papers

IAFFE-L is an international forum. We therefore ask that people posting messages orient their postings to a broad international audience. For example, references to statistics or patterns in a particular country should indicate the relevant country rather than assume that all members of the audience are from that country. A useful way to keep postings internationally oriented is to read the posting before sending while imagining being a reader from another country.

In addition, IAFFE-L expects postings to be feminist in form. Contributors should avoid a hostile and disrespectful tone and make every effort to be constructive in both tone and content.

IAFFE-L is a moderated list, which means that messages sent to the list are first reviewed by one of several moderators to ensure that they are within the scope of the list's purposes, and that they respect the list as a feminist space for discussion of feminist economics and related concerns. Please do not use this forum for discussions that do not directly relate to feminist economics.

IAFFE-L is the official list of the International Association for Feminist Economics. Both members and non-members are invited to subscribe.
