CFP: Centre for the Study of Women and Gender - post-grad


The Centre for the Study of Women and Gender at the University of Warwick would like to invite postgraduate students from any institution working in the field to present at the Graduate Student Seminar Series for the coming academic year 2010/2011. We welcome submissions from a number of disciplines on any gender related topic. This year, as well as welcoming conventional papers, we also encourage innovative and creative methods of presentation (such as the use of visual or more interactive materials, for example).

The annual Graduate Seminar Series provides a friendly, informal setting for graduate students to give presentations and exchange ideas relating to women and gender studies. Seminars aim to be interactive, and at each meeting students present for twenty minutes each on a topic of their choice, followed by a question-answer session and general discussion. Attendance is open to everyone, both faculty members and students, within and outside the university. Seminars will take place on two or three Wednesdays per term at 5pm (dates TBC).

The goals of the seminar series:
• To provide a safe and comfortable venue for students to present their research, to fine-tune conference presentations/possible publications or to simply get used to the idea of speaking in front of a group.
• To encourage everyone to get together informally to learn about what the student community in the UK are working on in relation to gender/feminist studies.

This centre is interdisciplinary and draws its membership from across the university. It aims to provide a focus for research and teaching on women and gender in the university and to facilitate the development of interdisciplinary research in the area of women’s and gender studies. Women’s and gender studies has been established for around twenty years at Warwick; the Centre itself was established in 1993 and in the summer of 2002 it became a research centre based in the Department of Sociology.
