A collaboration with the CGIS Reading Group

In the run up to our roundtable, we’ll be collaborating with the Centre for Gender, Identity, and Subjectivity for their first reading group of the term. Staff and students are all welcome.

We hope to see you all there. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided!

Tuesday 1 November 2016, 11.30-1pm, History Faculty

This collaborative reading group with CGIS will focus on the continuities, differences, and comparative advantages of framing one’s

research in terms of ‘gender studies’ and ‘women’s studies’.

In preparation for their round table on the same topic on Wednesday.
