Feminism, Gender and Sexuality

This seminar group is designed for research students and staff to explore their work around feminism, gender and sexuality.

The group meets informally about three times a term - at each session a speaker is invited to reflect upon their ideas as they develop, and to use the discussion space for the exploration of their own questions.

Session topics located within diverse disciplines are encouraged. These seminars are free and all are welcome to attend.
