The Gender and Sexuality Research Network is now accepting abstracts!
Our seminar series of 2017-18 has got off to a flying start this Autumn term, and we want that to continue with that momentum into the Spring and Summer term. We already have some excellent speakers lined up with their cutting edge research. Due to a high level of expressed interest, we are looking to bring more seminars to the series.
We are an interdisciplinary research group based at the University of Reading which provide a supportive and collaborative space for those whose work or interests include aspects of gender, sex, sexuality and the body to share ideas and stimulate discussion across disciplines. We are keen to hear from as wide a variety of perspectives as possible, welcoming the submission of abstracts from all disciplines. As it is our aim to offer an inclusive platform covering the full spectrum of gender and sexuality beyond traditional binary constructions, we encourage the submission of abstracts addressing, amongst others, issues of femininity and feminism, LGBTQI+ rights, as well work conducted from masculine and non-binary perspectives.
Our seminar series runs on Mondays from 4-5pm at the University of Reading in the Edith Morley Building. The format is a one-hour session with space for a twenty-minute paper followed by a Q&A. We offer a supportive environment where researchers can present works in progress or finished pieces. If you would like to take part, please contact us at ReadingGenderSexuality@gmail.com and include your 100-word abstract and title, name, department and preferred seminar date (within either the Spring or Summer term) in the email by the end of 22nd December 2017.
We look forward to hearing from you!
