The Centre for Gender, Identity and Subjectivity presents:
RESEARCH BRIEF ENCOUNTERS
Wednesday Week 8 (11 March), from 5 pm in the History Faculty Common Room, George St, Oxford
After the success of events such as the Early Career Research Showcase, we warmly welcome researchers of all levels with an interest in the areas of gender, identity and subjectivity to attend this “speed dating” style event. Intended as a relaxed and informal way to network and share research interests, the event will be focused on providing bite-sized introductions to attendees’ current or future research plans. Don’t worry: there will be no awkward chat up lines!
Where does the “speed dating” part come in? Attendees will be put in small groups, where everyone will be encouraged to give a short (1-2 minute) introduction to their research interests, or to a specific research project. There will be a few minutes to discuss ideas and shared interests, and then people will move to different groups to meet new people. This is a low-pressure way to share your research ideas, as you will have a small audience at any one time, and no advance preparation is necessary.
You’ll then have an opportunity to spend the rest of the event chatting with new friends. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
