Description

Student-organised day long workshop: Integrating Gender into Historical Research: A Workshop for All Historians

Too often historians have treated gender as a separate topic, confining its study to the subfields of gender or women’s history. Research conducted in these fields is pioneering and plays an important role in challenging prevailing narratives and ensuring that through revision, women’s experiences and contributions are acknowledged in history. While it is necessary to have fields that primarily focus on gender in history, historians in all fields can benefit from actively considering gender as a constant factor and analytical lens in their research. For some historians, it seems often difficult to integrate women’s perspectives and issues into ‘traditional’ history due to, amongst others, archival records that favour men and unconscious biases that it was predominantly men that have shaped history. To that end, we are hosting this workshop so that historians can learn how to use gender as an analytical tool in research.

Key Speaker: Professor Diana Paton (Edinburgh)
Participants: Dr Catherine Baker (Hull), Dr Dawn-Marie Gibson (RHUL), Dr Ben Griffin (Cambridge), Dr Tanya Harmer (LSE), Professor Diana Jeater (Goldsmiths), Ms Katie McElvanney (QMUL) and Dr Imaobong Umoren (LSE)

This event, organised by PhD students Grace Carrington, Judith Jacob and Eline van Ommen, is generously supported by a fund from the LSE Department of International History's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
