Following Geetha’s wonderful talk at our November meeting, she has shared her notes with us to put up on the blog. A preview:

In this presentation I explain the following:

-Who are Gypsy/Travellers?

-What is intersectionality?

-The different ways Intersectionality is interpreted

-How and Why Intersectionality can be applied to the experiences
Gypsy/Traveller Girls

-Challenges in doing this kind of research

Geetha’s talk was thought-provoking and so well prepared. Her research profile can be found here. The rest of her paper can be read here. Please read and feel free to leave a comment!


February meeting: Childhood Studies Jamboree, Feb. 17th 2-5

Our February meeting will be the Childhood Studies Jamboree, which is happening on the 17th, from 2-5pm in the Chrystal MacMillan Building.  The Jamboree is an informal mini-conference, where early career researchers share their experiences of doing research directly with children and young people. The presentations are done workshop-style, so there is plenty of opportunity for interaction. We have a wide variety of presenters this year, from different programmes, and from outside the university as well. The Jamboree draft programme 2016 is here.

Hope to see lots of you there! Please RSVP to if you’d like to attend, as our numbers are limited.
