Feminist Methodologies Symposium


Please do join us 20th-21st March 2018 for an exciting methodological line-up. Registration is open here.

Feminist Methodologies introduces current innovative feminist methodological work from across the arts, humanities, and the social sciences. Six speakers from different disciplines and methodological approaches will present their work in a mixture of workshops and research seminars. They will showcase and discuss new research methodologies emerging from feminist scholarship, including ethnography and self-reflexive feminism; memory work; affect and motion, intersectionality, and vulnerable writing. These will be useful to a range of feminist approaches to research, with applicability across different disciplines.

This event has been made possible by the support of the Loughborough University Gendered Lives Research Group, the Centre for Research in Communication and Culture, and the Advanced Research Methods Institute
