MPhil Text Seminar Lecturers: Academic Year 2022-23

The Multi-disciplinary Text Seminars component of the MPhil introduces students to expert scholars from over twenty University departments engaged in gender research. Experts introduce key texts from within their own field and then engage in debate with students about the merits of their own subject’s approaches. One of the Centre's Lecturers will facilitate discussion on the particular ontological, epistemological and methodological benefits (or potential problems) of differing ways of ‘doing’ gender research. Students therefore also gain a crucial understanding as to how clashing perspectives can be generative of a more holistic and nuanced approach to gender analysis.

These sessions will be used to scrutinise a series of primary texts under the guidance of academic experts from across the Social Sciences, Arts, Humanities, and (Natural) Sciences, including the subjects listed below:
