Feminism Beyond the Academy aims to become a nexus for feminist research within the social sciences and the humanities at Oxford. The seminars we organise will offer a sustained and interdisciplinary focus on gender, sexuality, and feminism that is unique within the university. The seminars will centre around tensions between theory and practice central to feminist thinking, as well as the interdisciplinary nature of feminism itself. In foregrounding these themes, we aim to facilitate dialogue between researchers and students on the one hand, and activists and practitioners on the other.
