New and emerging research within Gender and Feminist Geographies

Research Group Affiliation(s)
Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group
Postgraduate Forum
These sessions are aimed at postgraduates and early career researchers (ECRs) who would like the opportunity to present their research in a supportive and constructive academic environment and at researchers at all stages of their career that are interested in presenting papers that actively engage with discussions on current and emerging theoretical or methodological innovations in the field of feminist geography.

Gender and feminist geographies
‘Gender and feminist geographies’ is intended to cover a broad spectrum of research and papers are welcome from any area of feminist and gender geographical inquiry, with the aim of bringing together current and emerging themes, issues and approaches. Papers are welcome that connect with this year’s theme, ‘borders, borderlands and bordering’ although papers beyond this remit will also be considered. Researchers at any stage in their research process are welcome, making the session a great opportunity for early career and postgraduate researchers to gain experience presenting their work. The sessions will also provide a forum to meet and discuss emerging ideas with other researchers in a friendly and relaxed environment, as well as opportunities to explore possibilities and relevance of engaging with feminist theory and methods within research.

Session layout
Session 1 - Paper presentations: Five presentations each lasting approximately 15 minutes with time for questions after each paper.

Session 2: Snapshot presentations: 10-15 presentations each lasting 2 minutes (with the option to use pictures or creative approaches), followed by an open discussion. Whilst this session is open to anyone, we hope it will provide an opportunity for those not yet ready to present full papers to engage in the conference in a constructive and productive way. This session is also suitable to those who wish to explore the possibilities and relevance of gender and feminist theory to their research.
