On Saturday March 2nd Women and Politics PSA and FWSA held a research methods workshop at Bristol university. Over 20 PhD students attended and participated in discussions on:
- What does it mean if gender is statistically significant?
- Researching gendered discourse in policy debates: the case of abortion legislation;
- Problems, potentials and challenges of working with intersectionality; and
- A roundtable on the nexus of research and activism.
Thanks to our attendees whose interactions made the day so exciting, rewarding and productive.
Thanks our speakers: Fran Amery (University of Birmingham), Dr Elizabeth Evans (Bristol), Finn McKay (Bristol), Dr Thom Oliver (Oxford Brookes), Dr Maud Perrier (Bristol), Dr Kristi Winters (GESIS)
And special thanks to Dr Elizabeth Evans for organizing such a successful event!
