About the Symposium

Researching Feminist Futures

September 2nd and 3rd, 2011 at the University of Edinburgh,

Graduate School of Social and Political Science

Researching Feminist Futures will provide a space for creative discussions of feminism in academic practice.  This two-day conference is aimed at graduate and early years researchers working with feminism and/or gender.  Its goal is to develop new networks, new knowledge and strengthen ways of working.  In this way, we hope to celebrate our own efforts in feminist research whilst constructively re-imagining what feminist research can be.

The symposium will comprise a mix of individual contributions and methodological/theoretical workshops.  It is designed to be a constructive, inclusive and collaborative environment.  We will consider the transformative potential of feminist methodologies and our experiences with research and the research community.  This includes how to do a feminist research project and what it’s like to be a feminist academic.
