NGender Graduate Seminars at Sussex

This year I am again organising the NGender graduate seminars at Sussex, with Rachel Wood (presenting on the 1st March), at the School of Media Film and Music. The seminars are interdisciplinary, but mainly around sexuality and gender, and the speakers come from all over the country. All welcome – we hold the seminars for 50 minutes, every Tuesday 1-2pm in the Silverstone Building Room 317. We then usually move to the Dharba cafe for a chat. I’m presenting on the 15th of March.  Here is the ngender_programme:
