Hello IRN-ers. We are very excited to announce the first seminar for what is sure to be an exciting and engaging 2015 series for the Identity Research Network. The theme for the first seminar is ‘Gender’, and we have three fabulous presenters:
Dr Cai Wilkinson (Deakin University, Melbourne):
‘Mother Russia in queer peril’.
Julia Richardson (Deakin University, Melbourne):
‘Gender norms, motherhood as “sacred duty” and national identity in Turkey’.
Dr Lauren Gurrieri (Swinburne University, Melbourne):
‘Gender violence, advertising and taboo’.
Date: Friday 24 April
Location: Penang Room, Level 3, Swinburne Library, Hawthorn Campus.
As with last year, the Penang Room will be the IRN stomping ground for the year, and the last Friday of every month will be when we are holding our seminars, so you can mark them in your diaries now. We will be making rolling announcements with details about the themes and presenters of future seminars, watch this space!
