Coming soon! The 16 Days Blogathon is back for 2021, with a focus on histories, legacies, myths and memories, led from Edinburgh by the Histories of Gender and Sexualities Research Group. The blogathon is a collaborative project between the University of Edinburgh, Dr B R Ambedkar University Delhi, and University of New South Wales. Starts November 25, can’t wait!
In her contribution to the ECR Spotlight, PhD candidate Aerin Lai writes about her doctoral research focussing on masculinities in Singapore and questions the usefulness of a postcolonial intersectional analysis in understanding the kinds of masculinities that are constructed by Singaporean men in contemporary society.
Dr Charlotte Bosseaux has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to consider the ways in which the voices of gender-based violence survivors are translated for a practice-based, multilingual documentary underpinned by new research into the ethics of translation – more on her project in this post.
The recent publication of ‘Global Britain in a Competitive Age’ has caused quite a storm, and for good reason. In this post, Claire Duncanson and Catherine Eschle argue that this vision for a post-Brexit revitalisation of the UK’s role in the world marks a clear departure from past British policy on nuclear weapons.
For the first contribution to the ECR Spotlight, PhD Candidate Amy Andrada writes in defence of ‘assholes’ and about intragender sexism, as well as good, bad, and performative feminism. Amy’s piece is based on the lecture she will deliver at the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas on the 26th of August 2021. Attendance details can be found in this post.
