The Global Pursuit of Equality: Women, Networks, and Networking 1800-2000
26-27th September 2016, Seminar Room 3rd Floor, The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH)
Following the interdisciplinary graduate and early career researchers workshop held in May 2016 on the theme of ‘The global pursuit of equality: women, networks and networking 1800-2000’, the next event will be a two-day conference held on the same theme at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) from the 26-27th of September. This conference will bring together graduate and early career researchers alongside senior scholars to explore the ways in which women’s local, national and international networks helped to facilitate equality, drive political, economic, cultural and social change, and challenge overlapping systems of oppression over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During the conference, there will be two keynote lectures by economist and writer Devaki Jain and the William B. Ransford Professor of English and Comparative Literature and African-American Studies at Columbia University, Farah Jasmine Griffin.
During the conference, there will also be a roundtable discussion about the role of networking for the development of graduate and early career researchers' academic careers.
