The day brought together feminist researchers from PhD level through to Professors to learn more about a range of feminist methods. Professor Yvonne Tasker (UEA) spoke about securing research funding, Dr Natasha Mauthner (Aberdeen University) spoke about the research councils' expectations of digital data sharing and the associated research ethics, Dr Anne Humbert (Middlesex) discussed the use of gender indices while Professor Rosemary Hunter (Kent) shared her experiences of running a project which undertook feminist re-judgements of existing legal decisions.
In the afternoon Professor Alison Assister (UWE) spoke about feminist philosophy. We then had breakout master classes on visual methods, ethnography and insider-outsider methods. The day concluded with a feminist analysis of care, provided by Dr Fiona Poland (UEA). PhD students were able to showcase their work during a lunchtime poster session.
The day would not have been a success if Arabella Beckett (NBS PhD Student) had not developed the original idea. The hard work of Local Support both in the planning and running of the event was invaluable.
Thank you also to all of those who attended and spoke at the event. Such was the success of the day, we hope to run future events at different locations around the UK.
