Upper Hollingdean Road
Feminism, Gender & Sexuality
Facilitator Arianne Shahvisi
7-9.30pm Thursdays on 2 & 9 November 2017
At the Learning Resource Centre at the City cCean depot, Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. BN1 7GA
These workshops explore issues of contemporary feminisms, gender and sexuality
themes, in an inclusive and holistic context where diversity of social experiences are
respected and understood. The workshops give 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.
Places are limited so booking is essential.
