The CHASE Feminist Network is working to provide spaces of resistance in what continues to be a patriarchal higher education sector, with ongoing and intersectional discrimination happening at all levels.  We are aiming to create links with inspirational people inside and outside of CHASE that are challenging this environment and ensure we have space for discussion, and networks that provide both professional and personal support. The network places a strong emphasis on the importance of considering intersectionality and interdisciplinarity, as well as valuing the personal, political and creative, alongside and as integral to the academic.

This two-day event brings together researchers, students, practitioners, and activists from across the CHASE network whose research, pedagogy, and practice inspire forms of feminist resistance. It features papers, discussions, workshops and round tables which have been designed to offer alternative modes of thinking and expression to those dominating within the mainstream Neo-liberal university. Come and join us for two days of feminist thinking, crafting, sharing and writing.

The programme is still being finalised; final version will be released shortly.

To attend the event, please fill in the registration form at the end of bottom of the page.
