In the daytime we have academic, activist and charity presentations plus a keynote from Travis Alabanza. In the late afternoon we have a workshop on how to teach/talk about gender in different contexts. The evening will feature a keynote lecture from Ben Vincent and Meg-John Barker about gender in the contemporary world. As well as informing the less well-versed attendees, this will provide a demonstration of techniques explored during the workshop as well as insights from beyond the mainstream.
Subject areas: gender, trans studies, non-binary identities, activism, language and linguistics, media and visual communication, sexuality and public engagement
The conference is kindly funded by Queen Mary University of London’s Centre for Public Engagement and Doctoral College Initative Fund, as well as the Linguistics Association of Great Britain and Barefoot Wine.
