We are pleased to announce our Postgraduate conference for next week: Boundaries, Borders, and Care: Feminist Ethics in Practice.
In the postgraduate community at University College Cork (UCC), we are keen to explore the practical challenges that we face as early career researchers engaged in feminist and gender-focused research. We have found that specific challenges arise with these types of work, such as the risk of burnout, ethical questions, and professional and personal boundary-setting. We have begun to exchange and collaborate on these concerns, questioning how we can engage meaningfully and ethically with other researchers, as well as creative and cultural practitioners - activists, artists, community members. The idea for this conference arose from those conversations.
With the support of the Violence, Conflict, and Gender research cluster of the Centre for Advanced Studies in Languages and Cultures (CASiLaC), we are planning a the postgraduate conference which creates a forum to discuss the relationship between scholarship, policy, art, activism, and lived experiences. We envision this conference as a space for discussing boundary-setting, care, and ethics, with the aim of creating lasting connections among individuals working across diverse contexts and in different capacities.
This postgraduate conference, generously funded by CASiLaC, will take place across three consecutive afternoons (19th-21st May). The first two afternoons will consist of two round table discussions, with a break in between. The third and final afternoon will consist of one round table discussion, followed by a break, and then a facilitated creative workshop. Participants will produce a scrapbook while continuing the conversations in a relaxed atmosphere.
Free - all welcome. Organised by Brenda Mondragón Toledo, Clare Geraghty, Doris Murphy
