The Gender History Discussion Group will resume meeting in February 2016, and we would like to invite any postgraduate students interested in gender research to attend. Meetings will be every 3 weeks, and will include reading group sessions and papers presented by researchers from inside and outside Sheffield. PhD, Masters students and staff are very welcome to attend. The focus this year will be interdisciplinary, so you do not have to be based in the Department of History. We would particularly like to hear from new students who would be interested in lightning talks. These are fun and informal 3 minute talks on your chosen topic – it’s a great way to get some speaking practice and the chance to get feedback from other researchers.
The group’s interests are very broad and we would welcome work including, but not limited to, femininities, masculinities, transgender studies, the gendered body and sexuality.
