Manchester Feminist Theory Network Workshops
The Case for Feminism
- The University of Manchester
- Manchester Metropolitan University
- Salford University
We are delighted to announce a second series of Feminist Theory Workshops entitled: The Case for Feminism. Hosted across three weeks in May, the workshops will centre on the theme of the case, exploring the relationship between feminist theory and research and examining how theory is generated from particular case studies. Each speaker will present a paper detailing their own engagement with individual cases, considering how these have informed their development of particular theoretical perspectives and analytical tools. Discussants will present responses to the paper and facilitate the workshop.
All postgraduate students and staff are welcome.
