The Gender and Health Humanities Research Network is a place for postgraduate researchers and academics to meet and discuss ideas, and share work-in-progress and short provocations. The convenors are Dr Leah Sidi and Dr Stefano Rossoni

This term we are going with the theme Intimate Care and invite contributions which consider care in terms of the private, the invasive and the intimate. Do let us know if you have work in progress, or suggestions for things to read or watch on this theme!

For our first session Stefano will share some work in progress about care, masculinity and comedy. This will be followed by a social, and an opportunity to discuss what we want to do going forwards.
