Upper Hollingdean Road
Introduction to Feminism, Gender and Sexuality
Thursday evenings 7-9pm on 31st October and 7th November
These two 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.
These workshops are part of our degree-level course in Social Sciences (Level 1). They are open to anyone who is new to higher education (those who do not already have a degree).
The workshops will be held at the Council’s Learning Centre inside the City Clean refuse and recycling depot on Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. The entrance gates are opposite the Hollingbury Pub.
