Feminism, Gender & Sexuality » Sat 21 Jan,   10:30 am - 1:00 pm Feminism, Gender & Sexuality
Facilitator Arianne Shahvisi
10.30am - 1pm, Saturday 21 January 2017
Stanmer Room, Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton.
This free workshop explores issues of contemporary feminisms, gender and sexuality themes, in an inclusive and holistic context where diversity of social experiences are respected and understood.
This is an opportunity to learn about the fundamental importance of gender and sexuality as analytic categories but also to understand instances of oppression and exclusion. The latter is particularly important as gendered identities, norms, structures and institutions impact and shape our lives. Such experiences also intersect in complex ways with other aspects of our identities and social experiences such as ethnicity/race, class, sexual orientation, age and disability.
This workshop will focus on essential critical perspectives emerging in contemporary social and cultural contexts on a local and global scale. A critical perspective will provide diverse knowledge on gender related themes as affecting both women and men in contemporary society and will strive for independent and collective discussions in an encouraging and supportive environment.
This is part of the Free University's free degree-level course in Social Science and Humanities. If you would like to find out more about this course, please get in touch.Read more »
