Gender & Representation in history, media, literature and arts

The Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages (ILOS) and the Centre for Gender Research (STK) at the University of Oslo warmly invite you to take part in a one-day conference for PhD students and postdoctoral scholars within the humanities.

About the conference

How do representations of gender in history, media, literature and the arts affect our understanding of what it means to be male, or female, or both, or neither? What might these representations tell us about the way in which gender intersects with other aspects of identity, such as class, race, ethnicity, sexuality and ability?

This conference aims to facilitate discussions about the ways in which gender is and has been represented in various types of narratives and images, giving PhD students and postdoctoral scholars the opportunity to reflect on the role that gender plays in their own research.

Keynote speaker:  Professor Griselda Pollock  (University of Leeds, UK)
