Events &Workshops

I have also devised and hosted a large number of reading groups, events and workshops, as well as a new artists residency, as a member of Århus Feminist Collective. For details, see our project website.

Workshop, UK Council for Graduate Education Conference, University of Birmingham (July 2022)

‘Pre-application Doctoral Communications: A Participatory workshop Exploring Institutional Gatekeeping in Doctoral Programme Admissions’. The workshop objectives were (i) to map the roles of various stakeholders in the pre-application stage, (ii) to collectively refine understandings of this aspect of admissions, and (iii) to consider potential channels of action that could ameliorate some of the inequalities that emerge in this stage of admissions.

Two reading group sessions about the politics of family planning in Italy. The sessions were part of the Re-Imagining Citizenship project, and more details can be found here.

Feminist Methodologies Symposium – Loughborough University (April 2019)

I was a member of the organising committee for the annual symposium organized by the Gendered Lives research group. I arranged a performance by Nottingham-based feminist comedy troupe Major Labia and was postgraduate respondent to one of the papers.

Feminist Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon (March 2019)

With other members of the Centre for Doctoral Training: Feminism, Sexual Politics and Visual Culture, and in collaboration with the University Library and LU Arts, we organized three Wikipedia editing sessions as part of the global Art + Feminism campaign.

LGBT+ Poetry Workshop (February 2019)

As part of the LU Arts “Happy Mondays” series and the University’s LGBT History Month, I ran a poetry workshop on LGBT+ poetry.

Expired – Exhibition of work by photographer Amira Mortada (December 2018)

I curated an exhibition and artist’s talk with Egyptian photojournalist Amira Mortada about Egyptian women over the age of thirty who are unmarried and therefore considered “expired” by society.

ABZ -Aarhus Art Book and Zine Fair (November 2018)

I gave a reading from feminist zines published by Synchronise Witches Press (Leeds), such as The Chapess, and short talk about DIY print culture in relation to feminism.

#metoo Symposium – Aarhus University (August 2018)

With colleagues from the Cultural Transformations research group, I co-organized a one-day conference about the relevance of #metoo at Danish universities. I was involved with all aspects of the organization, from inviting speakers to practicalities. At the seminar itself, I was in charge of a workshop about experiences of sexism amongst staff. I commissioned the visual communicator Abdul Dube to make graphic recordings of the presentations and discussions that took place during the day in order to make the seminar outcomes easier to disseminate.

Equality for All Workshops and Demonstration (March 2018)

Together with other volunteers, I was a part of organising the annual International Women’s Day events at the Women’s Museum in Aarhus.

Herstory: Literary Women – Aarhus University (February 2018)

With funding from the English department at Aarhus University, I arranged a visit from British educator Alice Wroe, who runs the Herstory project. Alice gave a lecture at the university, ran a workshop about forgotten women of literary history for students, and also ran a workshop for Århus Feminist Collective.
