Dare to Do it Differently: Creative Methods In Gender and Sexuality Research & Public Engagement
Transforming Sexuality and Gender Research cluster event on: Friday 3rd July from 12.00-4.30 p.m, Falmer Campus, University of Brighton
Want to explore beyond well-used methods that reproduce well-established stories about sex, gender, sexuality and relating?
Fancy yourself doing modelling, bad sex writing or as a deep thinker, visual artist or ‘craftivist’? Read on!
Creative research methods can yield narratives different from and phenomenologically richer than interviews, focus groups and surveys. When doing public engagement and dissemination, creative methods can help people think differently about sex, gender, sexuality and relations/relating to challenge popular/media representations.
Having been successfully hosted by the Open University, University of Manchester and Coventry University this half-day FREE event is hosted by the University of Brighton. It will encourage sharing of knowledge and experiences and will explore among a host of other issues:
- creative writing around intimacy, desire, and sex;
- arts-based and performance practices;
- craft, activism and creative play to present narratives;
- tools for collaborative production.
This event would appeal specifically to; PhD Students; Researchers in the Field; Community Partners
