You are warmly invited to the Gender and Diversity Hub’s second brown bag conversation Expressing, negotiating and regulating identities: the norm, the group and the self in gender and diversity contexts on 16 April.
This second session explores a central topic of gender and diversity work: identity. Identity expression, negotiation, regulation and conflicts are at the center of many of our research agendas. We therefore propose to explore this theme from a critical and interdisciplinary perspective, gathering speakers from law, social sciences and the humanities. The aim is to showcase how different disciplines investigate and talk about identities, and to uncover the commonalities and differences in our approaches to identity-related research.
