Location: Buchanan B318 (UBC Wayfinding)

This event is open to all students, staff, faculty, community members and other Gender+ allies.

Research that undertakes gender and sex analysis can be powerful for understanding the lived, material realities of gender and sexual difference. Feminist and gender studies have pushed academic research beyond sex disaggregation that views the categories of ‘male’ and ‘female’ as fixed and innate to see gender and sex as socially constructed norms that are connected to power. By centering power in discussions of gender, feminist scholars invite us to take seriously how feminist scholarship can impact communities outside of academia. This means not only rethinking our methodologies and research frameworks but also our practices as researchers and scholars living in an entangled world.

As a group of emerging and established scholars what role can gender+ analysis play in helping us navigate our research and lives during a time of unprecedented crisis? How does a gender+ lens invite us to reimagine our relations to our work, each other, and the world we live in? We invite you to join us for a moment of collective reflection to think about these questions and more with peers, professors and other Gender+ allies on September 27th at 12pm.
