Session 404: Feminism and the (Post)Graduate Student - A Round Table Discussion
Monday 9 July 2007, 19.00-20.00
|Sponsor:||Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship|
|Organiser:||Liz Herbert McAvoy, Department of English Language & Literature, Swansea University|
|Moderator/Chair:||Ruth Evans, Department of English Studies, University of Stirling|
This session aims to interrogate attitudes within academia towards feminist scholarship and the advantages and perceived disadvantages which this type of methodological approach may entail. Bringing together a range of academics, both seasoned and postgraduate, from a range of different backgrounds and experiences, it will unpick the problems associated with feminist scholarship in our discursively ‘postfeminist’ times. It will also facilitate a comparative approach to where we think the future of feminist scholarship lies.
