The Gender and Modernity Research Group, led by Meaghen Morris (Gender and Cultural Studies), with colleagues from Art History and Film Studies, English, Gender and Cultural Studies, History, Philosophy and Sociology and Social Policy, have received a Faculty of Arts Collaborative Research Scheme grant. The members of the group include five from SOPHI: Catherine Driscoll, Anna Hickey-Moody, Natalya Lusty, Jane Park (Gender and Cultural Studies), Moira Gatens (Philosophy), as well as Melissa Hardie, Mary Roberts and Laleen Jayamanne (SLAM) and Catherine Waldby and Melinda Cooper (SSP/SSPS).
This group brings together researchers in the humanities and social sciences who work on the intersections of gender and modernity across a range of periods and contexts and draw on a range of disciplines and methods. It aims to promote the importance of , and build capacity for, feminist research into the ways modernity produces ideas and experiences of gender and the ways gender shapes experiences of modernity, including degrees of access to the narratives of progress and self-determination that
characterize the idea of modernity.
Congratulations to all involved.
