Event description

Description

Assuming Gender is a postgraduate research group at Cardiff University, dedicated to the timely analysis of constructions of gendered texts, practices, and subjectivities. It features and discusses research from a diverse range of methodologies and approaches to gender studies, and includes work in feminist theories, queer theories, critical and cultural theory, literature, film studies, sociology, and other relevant fields.

As a complement to a special issue of the Assuming Gender journal (which will be published later this year), the conference will also take ‘Consuming Gender’ as its theme. Consumer culture plays a significant role in establishing and maintaining binary identity distinctions (male/female, gay/straight, black/white), undermining the validity of those identifying across or in-between one or more categories, or who refuse categorisation at all.

The conference aims to bring together work from across the Humanities, and beyond, that focuses on gender and consumerism. The conference hopes to promote discussion of how consumer culture constructed, and how it has been constructed by, gender through the ages.
