About the Event

Building on a successful event last year, this day event organized on a consortium basis by City University of London, Coventry, LSE, and Annenberg (UPenn & USC) will consist of several panel sessions scheduled across 2 days. Each panel with have 3/4 presentations lasting 10 minutes with time for questions on a range of topics from contemporary feminist research.

We are inviting PhD and post-doc researchers to showcase their work from all areas of research within the field of feminist and gender studies to present work on a range of subjects connected to gender and research in times of crisis and change.

This might include, for example, work on social reproduction and COVID, violence and consent, backlash and protest, networks of care, post-colonial feminism, new queer theory, feminist autoethnography, the new ecofeminism, social media microcelebrity, and so on. The emphasis will be on creating a friendly, informal and relaxed forum for presenting new work and new ideas as part of an attempt to develop critical feminist pedagogy.
