Girls' Studies Research Network Launch: Snapshots From the Field

At conferences, we often meet other York colleagues working on girls and girlhood, but rarely have the chance to chat about the intersections of our research at length. What is happening in girls' studies at York University? Come to the Girls' Studies Research Network's inaugural launch event and find out!

We invite you to come share a small snapshot of your research with other girls' studies scholars on Friday, September 13, 2019 between 2 - 4 PM in 626 Kaneff Tower, York University.

3 POWERPOINT SLIDES, 3 POINTS, 10 MINUTES MAX

Instead of formal paper presentations, we invite participants to highlight three succinct main points. Our goal is to get a sense of what we are researching, across career stage, department, and discipline! Examples of this structure might include:

- past, current, and future research goals
- 3 problems you've encountered in your research
- 3 new questions your research raises
- 3 texts or case studies you are working with
- 3 different real life girls that your research engages

If you don't want to present, no problem! Please come join us for the afternoon and enjoy talks from our confirmed speakers: Natalie Coulter, Deanne Williams, Clara Chapdelaine-Feliciati, Anuppiriya Sriskandarajah, Marlis Schweitzer, Sarah Flicker, Mary Grace Lao, and Lisa Sandlos.

To also present, please fill out this form by September 6, 2019.
