(Not Very Far) Away Day 2016


Are you interested in research and teaching on gender and women? Then join us for the 2016 (Not Very Far) Away Day of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender!

The (Not Very Far) Away Day provides an opportunity for scholars and students interested in women and gender from across the University of Warwick to meet and find out about each other's research. In previous years we have made posters about our research, bounced ideas about new research agendas off each other, and discussed activities that we would like the Centre to organise. The NVFAD offers a space for informal conversations about research interests that we have in common and ways of developing new research on women and gender. It also provides a forum for forging creative links across departments and energising those of us working on women and gender.

After very successful NVFADs, for example, in 2007, 2008 and 2010, we are delighted to announce that the NVFAD is returning in 2016! It will be taking place on
June 8th, 2016
from 1.00 - 4.30 (including lunch)
in Ramphal R0.03/04

The NVFAD is open to all staff and students at Warwick, from across all faculties and services within the University.
The full detailed programme for the NVFAD will be announced nearer the time, but the event will include a discussion session on the current state and future directions of research and teaching on gender at Warwick, a poster exhibition, a publications fair and a networking lunch.
If you are interested, you have the chance in the NVFAD to exhibit a poster presenting your research on gender or to bring copies of your publications for the publications fair. Both are optional; they are not a requirement of participation... However, many people have said in the past that the poster exhibition is one of the best components of the NVFAD, so we want to actively encourage you to prepare something, even if it's only a very simple poster! You will find some guidelines and poster templates here.
