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

All staff, early careers researchers, graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in gender, identity and subjectivity are welcome to join us.

Share your research on gender, identity and subjectivity with staff and students across the University at our ‘Research Brief Encounters’ 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.

All staff and students from any discipline are welcome to attend. Undergraduates developing/considering dissertations on gender, identity and subjectivity are also warmly invited to join us.
