The Centre for the Study of Democracy wishes to welcome a new theme of gender and sexuality research to the centre by hosting a workshop for staff and postgraduate students working in this area.

The premise of this workshop is that gender and sexuality are not only political in the formal policy-making sense, but that the everyday practices of gender and sexuality are themselves political.
This inter-disciplinary workshop aims to highlight the work of current staff and postgraduate students and provide opportunities for networking. This call seeks proposals concerning gender and sexuality in regards to any of the following themes:

  • violence
  • inclusion and exclusion
  • identities

We welcome work in progress, previously published research and areas of curiosity or debate, and contributions which examine any geographic location or time period, and which use any methodological approach. There will be 10 minute presentations at the workshop. 
The conveners are Daniel Conway (Department of Politics and International Relations), Helen Glew (History) and Ashley Kitchen (Department of Politics and International Relations.
