Topic: The Importance of Feminist Knowledge in an Altered World 
We are living in globally challenging times, with shifts to the right, heightened nationalisms, and a seemingly cavalier relationship to the truth. This workshop asks what feminist epistemology and methodology can do under these conditions? It focuses in particular on questions of process as well as content, and on the importance of resisting absolutism and embracing uncertainty as political strategy. As part of the workshop, participants are asked to read one article and the introduction from the most recent issue of Feminist Review on 'Methods', and to consider ahead of time what 'vulnerability' might mean in relationship to their own research projects. 
 
RSVP here.  Places are limited. All ECRs are welcome.
