Registration for this event is closed

This event is based around the illustrated edited collection ‘Feminism in Our Times: Crises, Connections & Cares’, with presentations from contributors, a panel discussion and Q+A session.

Speakers include:

  • ‘Feminism in Our Times’ artist and designer, Samia Singh
  • Prof. Yvette Taylor and contributors Dr Maddie Breeze, Dr Cristina Costa, Dr Chloe Maclean and Dr Churnjeet Mahn.

Presenters will reflect on contemporary feminist times, and consider if artistic collaborations make for more accessible research. We will ask delegates to consider the following:

  • Why art?
  • Why academia?
  • Does academic input limit or extend creative possibilities?
  • Does art extend or intervene in feminism?
  • How do we represent ‘crises’ and ‘feminisms’?
  • How to illustrate feminist crises in careful ways that connect?

Who should attend?

This event will appeal to students, feminists, and researchers across the career course who wish to utilise creative methods and/or disseminate and collaborate with artists, and to artists and designers who wish to forge connections with researchers. Also, anyone with an interest in feminism. 

Benefits of attending

  • A collective thinking through of contemporary feminist times, and feminist responses to crises
  • A chance to consider the politics and pleasures of feminist production 
  • An opportunity to meet and engage with interdisciplinary feminist academics
  • An opportunity to meet and engage with artist and designer, Samia Singh 
  • A chance to consider the purpose, potential & problems of academic-activist collaborations
  • Offers a provocation on creative methods and ways of dissemination (e.g. Open Access)
