Feminisms In Public at Manchester Metropolitan University invite PhD and Early Career Researchers across multiple disciplines and institutions to a Meet and Greet at 70 Oxford Street.
This event will be a chance to connect with like-minded researchers, network and learn about the breadth and scope of feminist research currently being undertaken across the North West. We are interested in attracting participants who share our interest in the challenges of meaningfully involving various publics in our research. The aim of our network is to organise a series of events to engage the public in current gender, sexuality and feminist research across the North West.
The Meet and Greet event has been designed to be accessible and empowering. It will be structured in three segments devised to open up non-hierarchical alternatives to traditional academic conference and seminar formats:
- 2-3 minute talks: each participant will give a brief introduction to the main themes and motivations of their research.
- Academic “speed dating”: each pair will have 4 minutes to discuss their research interests and engagement with feminist research. There will be a tea and coffee break halfway through this session.
- Discussion: there will be three talking points to guide an all-inclusive discussion of the challenges of meaningfully involving various publics in feminist research.
There will be snacks and drinks at the end of the event to allow a chance for everyone to talk more informally.
The event is FREE to attend, however places are limited. Please register HERE.
