You are warmly invited to Durham University’s first interdisciplinary research day on Gender, Sex and Sexualities, organised by the Gender and Sexuality Research Network with the support of the Centre for Medical Humanities.
Gender, sex and sexualities research continues to represent a critical interface between public and private lives, and is central to our understanding and negotiation of culture, ideology and agency.
The research day is conceptualised around four themes: relating; cultures and media; ways of knowing; and resistance, friction and fluidity. Each session comprises brief presentations – or ‘provocations’ – followed by 40 minutes of discussion and debate. By insisting that presentations are short and organising sessions thematically we are aiming to create the context for pithy, edgy, provocative presentations which tackle substantive issues in the field of gender, sex and sexualities and set the tone for lively ongoing interaction.
Full details of the programme are available here.
