Event description

Description

Over the past decade non-binary genders have become increasingly visible in the public sphere, and knowledge and resources on non-binary identities regularly circulates via community groups and on social media. However, there has as yet been little academic research undertaken in the field, and less still relating specifically to non-binary gender experiences in higher education separate from the experiences of (binary) trans folk more generally.

Consequently we currently know very little about how non-binary people negotiate HE and what their needs are in it. It is in this context that we are conducting the Non-Binary Genders in Higher Education: Lived Experiences, Imagined Futures project. On June 19th, as part of the project, we are hosting a public roundtable discussion featuring a panel of non-binary academics and students. The panel will discuss both the current state of ‘being’ non-binary in higher education, what non-binary inclusive curricula might constitute in their disciplines, and how we might imagine the future of higher education beyond the gender binary.


Guests on the panel include:

  • Jayne Fletcher (University of Westminster)

  • Corey Gilmore (Goldsmiths, University of London)

  • Kat Gupta (University of Roehampton)

  • Aidan Lewis (University of Westminster)

  • Shamira Meghani (University of Cambridge)

  • Ben Vincent (Open University)


The roundtable discussion is open to all HE staff, students and members of the public. Tickets are free, but registration is required. The event will include a drinks reception from 7-8pm.



The venue is wheelchair accessible and has single stall toilets. If you have any additional access requirements, please contact us so we can support your full participation.
