The TORCH Gender and Authority network are hosting a seminar with speakers Matthew Hurley (Oxford Brookes University) and Jessica Frazier (University of Kent). Jointly supported by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities and the Balliol Interdisciplinary Institute, the Gender & Authority project aims to explore and question received notions of social and cultural authority, specifically as they intersect with issues of gender.

The seminar will begin at 5.15pm. It will end at 6.45pm and be followed by dinner with the speakers, to which seminar attendants are most welcome. 


Matthew Hurley (Oxford Brookes University) The ‘genderman’: (re)negotiating militarized masculinities when ‘doing gender’ at NATO

Jessica Frazier (University of Kent) The Other Woman: Unorthodox Forms of 'Femininity' in the Hindu World
