As a university we pride ourselves on the principle of research-led teaching. In the Humanities Division this has scope to be a particularly fruitful and generative process, whereby research informs teaching and teaching also stimulates research. We propose - as the first in a series of lunchtime workshops/debates under the aegis of TORCH and the divisional Equality and Diversity agenda - a discussion on the theme of the gendered lens. We want to explore ways in which research deploys the lens of gender to disrupt and challenge fields of scholarship, and how that productive dislodging of perspective informs teaching (and could do so more radically), at both an individual and a more systemic level. Three panellists – from the Faculties of Music, History and English – the first three Humanities Faculties to engage with the Athena Swan process – will introduce the debate.
Stefano-Maria Evangelista (Associate Professor, Faculty of English)
Laura Tunbridge (Professor of Music, Faculty of Music)
Sarah Crook (Junior Fellow, Faculty of History)
This workshop will be chaired by Jane Garnett (Tutor in Modern History, Faculty of History).
