About the Event

Using a gender+ lens can help deepen our research findings by considering how gender and sex can produce differential experiences and are shaped by broader structures of power. Having an interest in intersectional modes of analysis, however, is often much simpler than practically implementing these ideas in our research practice. What does it actually mean to avoid approaching gendered identities as additive? How do we conduct gender+ research in our specific disciplinary fields? What theories, literature, and methods should we be using?

Facilitated by the authors of ORICE’s It’s Not Gender as Usual guide, we invite you to join this workshop for a space to work through the practical challenges of conducting gender+ intersectional research.  Bring the questions, concerns, and curiosities you have about gender+ as we guide you to workshop challenges you’ve faced in your research. This workshop is not meant to provide a singular approach for how to conduct ‘good research,’ but instead hopes to provide multiple entry points for participants to reflect on how gender+ can be applied to their specific research and disciplinary context alongside like-minded community members.
