A Critical Feminist Arts/Research Workshop Series (and zine!) brought to you by Dr Ashleigh Watson, Dr Laura Rodriguez Castro, and Samantha Trayhurn.

In this workshop, we explore ways of practically extending critical and feminist social research with art – specifically photography, sociological fiction and zine making. These arts practices are valuable for opening up how we critically explore, analyse, collaborate on, and share experiences and understandings of the social world.

The workshop will involve talks on participatory visual methods, sociological fiction, and zine making. Following these talks is a practical workshop, where participants will collaboratively experiment with each of these methods to explore themes of affect, knowledge, and embodiment. We will produce a zine on the day, a ‘curated sociology’ of photography, research writing and fiction interventions, to be published with Frances St Press.

This workshop will be suitable for Honours, Masters and PhD students, and established social researchers interested in a practical introduction to these arts/research methods. Participants do not need prior experience in these practices – just enthusiasm!

Registration is free, but places are limited! Registrations open on 15th of October 2019.

This event is run by the School of Sociology with funding provided by the Gender Institute
