How To Apply A Gender Lens To Your Research: A Symposium

Students and researchers from all universities welcome

Wednesday 21st March 2018, 14:00-17:00

Room B29, Birkbeck, Malet Street, Bloomsbury, WC1E 7HX

The UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health proudly presents: How To Apply A Gender Lens To Your Research: A Symposium

In this talk, PhD students and Early Career Researchers from universities all over London will come together to discuss the urgent importance of viewing research from a gender lens and provide practical tips for how this can be accomplished in practice. By encouraging an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of gender in academia and beyond, we hope to inspire and motivate researchers to apply a gender lens to their own research. IGH MSc students are especially recommended to attend this seminar to reflect on ideas for their summer dissertation.
