We are delighted to announce the launch of the ‘sexgen Northern Network’.
‘sexgen’ is a collaborative interdisciplinary network bringing together gender and sexuality based research centres around the North of England. We aim to bring academic research, writing and thinking on gender and sexuality into conversation with the ideas, cultural expressions and knowledges of community groups, cultural sites and activist organisations. Series organising contacts are: Sally Hines, Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies, University of Leeds: firstname.lastname@example.org and Surya Monro, Centre for Research in Social Sciences, University of Huddersfield: email@example.com.
In 2014-2015 sexgen will hold a series of free seminars, details of which will be forthcoming. Seminars will be themed to reflect current and emerging themes within gender and sexuality studies.
Please find attached the Network flyer and the flyer for the first seminar: Seminar 1: February 28th 2014, The Centre for Research in Social Sciences, University of Huddersfield: ‘Compulsory Sexualities’.
We would be grateful if you could publicize ‘sexgen’ among your networks.
We look forward to seeing you at future events.
With best wishes,
Surya Monro and Sally Hines.
