Women's Studies and Gender Studies Roundtable Discussion

The Gender & Authority TORCH Network, in collaboration with the Centre for Gender, Identity, and Subjectivity, are hosting a roundtable discussion on the continuities, differences, and comparative advantages of framing one's research in terms of 'Gender studies' or 'Women's studies'. The roundtable, featuring speakers from a range of University of Oxford faculties, programmes, and research networks, will aim to address a series of questions on the methodological continuities, divergences and complementarity of 'Gender Studies' and 'Women's Studies'. Speakers will be invited to respond to a number of questions and the floor will be opened to further responses from attendants. The roundtable will be followed by a drinks reception at 6.45pm. This promises to be a great occasion to showcase research currently taking place in Oxford and also to encourage new connections and collaborations. All welcome.
