Feminist Methodologies when Studying Conflict
Friday 31 May 2019 | 1400 - 1700
Courtauld Institute of Art, Vernon Square, Penton Rise, Kings Cross, London WC1X 9EW
The third session in the “Researching Conflict in the Humanities” programme will be centred on feminist methodology and how it may enable and affect the study of war and conflict. We will address together questions such as: What have feminist approaches brought and can continue to bring to the study of war and conflict? How might gender, and in particular a feminist viewpoint, influence the choices we make in our research methodology? How could our own research in war and conflict be articulated through a feminist methodology?
The event will begin with a talk by Dr Azadeh Fatehrad, presenting examples of feminist methodology in her ongoing practice-based research projects. A group discussion reflecting on selected texts in relation to the thematic of this session will follow.
Dr Azadeh Fatehrad is an artist and curator based in London. Dr Fatehrad’s research, artistic and curatorial practice are intertwined around a process of gathering information and generating new imagery in response to archival material she discovers. Her practice ranges from still and moving images to fictional stories, short films, performance and artist books. Dr Fatehrad is co-founder of ‘Herstoriographies: The Feminist Media Archive Research Network’ in London.
