Is there such a thing as transphobia? - gender transitions, feminism, and the new authoritarian backlash

Exciting invitation to HDRs and ECRs – Raewyn Connell masterclass on Thursday 17 May

Raewyn Connell is visiting the ANU for an NTEU lunchtime seminar on 18 May and the Gender Institute is inviting HDR students and ECRs to participate in a masterclass discussing some of her influential work on gender and sexuality on 17 May, from 3pm-5pm in Sir Roland Wilson seminar room 3.03/3.04. The specific theme for the session is Is there such a thing as transphobia? - gender transitions, feminism, and the new authoritarian backlash.

Raewyn is a distinguished sociologist and the author of several widely read and cited books including Gender and Power: Society, the Person and Sexual Politics (1987), Masculinities (2005), Southern Theory: the global dynamics of knowledge in social science (2007), Gender in World Perspective (second edition 2015, with Rebecca Pearse) and Gender Reckonings: New Social Theory and Research (edited by James W. Messersschmidt, Patricia Yancey Martin, Michael A. Messner and Raewyn Connell, 2018).

If you want to participate in this exciting masterclass, please send a short paragraph (no more than 250 words) specifying your name, affiliation at ANU, a succinct statement of your current research and how this connects to Raewyn’s work.
