Lunchtime Meeting for Women Working in the Humanities


Lunchtime Meeting for Women Working in the Humanities

Women in the Humanities (WiH) invites all women working in the humanities and researching women’s lives to attend a friendly and informal lunchtime meeting on Wednesday 25 November at 12.30pm, in the Seminar Room at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH). This is open to all women at any stage of their career (postgraduates, early career researchers and faculty staff).

Established in 2014, WiH is an interdisciplinary programme that brings together scholars from across humanities disciplines to develop new approaches to women’s equalities. It is now the UK’s major forum for interdisciplinary humanities scholarship on women and encourages research related to women’s lives, identities and representations.

The programme aims to promote the opportunities Oxford offers to women working in the Humanities at all career stages. WiH has four aims:

• To create knowledge that develops new perspectives on gender equality.

• To train the next generation of pioneering women scholars, policymakers and professionals by supporting the Oxford Women’s Studies Masters degree.

• To promote women’s voice and influence in the humanities.

• To support the University of Oxford in its promotion of gender equality.

In this session members of WiH will share information about the group and attendees are kindly invited to offer ideas about what events or research support they would like WiH to promote. The meeting will also offer an opportunity for women working in the humanities to meet and get to know about each others research interests.

A sandwich lunch will be provided   |   Children welcome.

A poster is available here. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Imaobong Umoren.
