Call for Papers: Roundtable on Issues of Gender

 posted by | 12/03/2019

We would like to invite you to a roundtable on Thursday, 6 June 2019, 9:30am-12:30pm. This event aims to bring together academics, with a common interest in gender, to network and to facilitate new collaborative links. It is an opportunity for all of us to learn what each other is working on, forge new connections for interdisciplinary work, and develop new collaborations for funding bids and co-conducting research studies.

The day will begin with each participant presenting a brief three-minute overview of their research. We will then break into small groups, based on research interests, to ‘brainstorm’ potential collaborations and new projects. This will be followed by a summary of the day, and an agenda for future steps. Dr Paula Eves from Research and Enterprise will be available throughout the day to answer questions related to funding bids and applications.

We would especially welcome participants working on scholarship in the following areas:

• Gender, technology & media
• Intersectional perspectives of gender
• Issues of identity &development in relation togender
• Issues of gender in connection to employment or human rights
• Historical understandings & construction of gender
• Issues of masculinity

Additionally, any other form of scholarship that focuses on gender is invited to attend.

The Roundtable is hosted by the Eleanor Glanville Centre (the University’s interdisciplinary centre for inclusion, diversity and equality), Dr Elisa Rubegni (School of Computer Science) and Dr Nik Dickerson (School of Sport and Exercise Science). If you are interested in taking part, please send an abstract describing your research (250 words) to by 29 March 2019.

Please note, there will be no requirements to submit a formal paper. The purpose of the abstract is to help organize participants into relevant working groups. You will be asked to provide a three-minute summary of your work for introductory purposes.
