Precarious Work & Gender Inequality in Higher Education: Researching for Change

A research symposium exploring the intersection of gender inequality and precarious work in higher education.

This symposium focuses on the relationship between precarious work and gender inequality in higher education. The event will bring together scholars based in Ireland and the UK to share their research and lived experiences of gender inequality and precarious work in higher education institutions. The symposium will include panels and roundtable discussions on the intersection of precarious work and gender with other forms of inequality; the role of non-precarious allies; reflections on activism and future research directions.

The event coincides with Sara Ahmed's public lecture at UCC.
