Gender, Feminism and Identity: What makes you, you?

A blended face with different facial parts of men and women

What’s on offer?

Through bite-sized talks, this event will address issues including how gender identities have changed, how gender is represented in the media and how gender is experienced in the public and private spheres. Audience members are encouraged to bring an item from their lives that they feel communicates their experiences of gender. These items will be used in a facilitated discussion to examine how ‘common sense’ ideas of gender permeate every aspect of our daily lives. Our speakers will work with the audience to draw connections between their experiences and the concepts discussed. This will be followed by a Q&A to allow open discussion. This event will be taking place at the Midlands Arts Centre (MAC Birmingham), Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham.

What’s it about?

Today’s society is increasingly concerned with questions of how individual and societal relationships to gender and feminism inform our identities and lived experience. This event will share research and knowledge from the University of Birmingham and engage the audience to think about how notions of gender and identity are shared in society and how these notions inform our thoughts, feelings and actions about ourselves and others. This event is for anyone interested in gender, feminism and identity and promises to be a thought provoking, not to be missed, session.

Who’s leading the event?

Speakers will include experts from the University of Birmingham: Dr Julie Whiteman, Prof. Joanne Duberley, Dr Scott Taylor, Dr Elliott Evans, Chalisa Chintrakarn.
