Open for applications - Public Policy Engagement: Skills and Strategies
25, 26 September & 16 October
Goldsmiths, University of London

AHRC-funded CHASE Public Policy Engagement: Skills and Strategies training will give participants an enhanced understanding of how public policy is developed, how research in the arts and humanities can influence and inform public policy. Through a series of roundtables and workshops with academics working in a broad range of the arts and humanities disciplines and non-HEI professionals working in the area of policy making and influence, participants will develop the skills to effectively engage with public policy developments and understand how their research can be mobilised to impact on public policy.

   Challenging Gender,
   Embracing Intersectionality?
   A one-day CHASE Symposium

   Saturday 28 November 
   Open University, Camden

 In 1989, Kimberle Crenshaw coined the term ‘intersectionality’ as a means to highlight the experience of those ‘multiply burdened’ by their intersecting experiences of race and gender. She notably argued that ‘black women are theoretically erased’ by the ‘tendency to treat race and gender as mutually exclusive categories of experience and analysis’ (139). Twenty-five years on, intersectionality has become an important framework and buzzword in feminist practice, promising to conceptualise and make visible the experiences and voices of those traditionally marginalised by feminism itself.

This symposium will ask: how does our practice as feminist doctoral researchers interrogate, resist, or indeed reinscribe the significance of gender as a singular category of analysis? How useful, practical, or limiting is intersectionality as a methodological framework? Should our practice finally challenge gender and embrace intersectionality?

This one-day interdisciplinary symposium supported by CHASE Cohort Development Fund will be an opportunity for students across the CHASE consortium to present on any aspect of their research relating to Gender and/or Intersectionality.

Autonomy of the Self
11 September 11 – 31 October 2015
Private view 6–9 pm 10 September
P21 Gallery, 21 Chalton St, London NW1 1JD
Featuring works by Moufida Fedhila, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Šejla Kamerić, Armenoui Kasparian Saraidari, Sadik Kwaish Alfraji, Nadia Mounier and CHASE funded student Joy Stacey.

Autonomy of Self is a group exhibition bringing together moving image and still photography from across the former Ottoman territories to explore how individuals are using the human image to refuse violence and conflict. The exhibition responds to Ariella Azoulay’s Civil Contract of Photography, expanding on her writing to explore how the lens-based image made in conflict is produced, used and exhibited to create visual representation where political representation is absent.

A seven-week public programme of events accompanies the exhibition, including a symposium with the artists hosted by the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) at the University of the Arts London.

The theme of the conference – Emerging Issues in Law – provides a rare opportunity for promising postgraduate students to showcase their research into pressing legal issues and to discuss their ideas for tackling these challenges with a highly-skilled, receptive audience of fellow postgraduate students, early career researchers, established academics, legal practitioners, and members of civil society. We would like to kindly ask you to disseminate.

Dancing with Memory symposium
Saturday 16 April 2016
Senate House, University of London

This symposium seeks to address the mediated memories of popular dance practices. From the colonial circulation of dance prints to YouTube, popular dances have been ‘captured’ in mediated forms. As texts, artworks, films and digital files, popular dance forms gain a mobility, exchangeability and material persistence that alter their relationships to discourses of modernity, capitalism and history.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: Monday 2 November. Conference website
