The Bloomsbury Gender Network is a network of colleagues working on gender, who are interested in sharing seminars, research and resources across the Bloomsbury universities.
We hope that you will be interested in joining the network and sharing your experiences and knowledge with us. We organise an annual Colloquium as part of the International Women's Day celebrations; please see the 'Files' tab for previous years events.
Thank you to all who attended our 2016 event, "Alliances for Change: Advancing feminist Interests?" In the face of profound global challenges which divide and fragment feminist agendas, this colloquium aimed to examine accounts of initiatives that offer creative strategies for transformation.

Please click on the link at the bottom of this page for details of our Feminisms, Gender and Sexualities seminar series.
The series is organised by Jenny Parkes, Annette Braun, Charley Nussey & Claudia Lapping at the Institute of Education, designed for research students and staff to explore their work around feminisms, gender and sexuality. We meet informally about three times a term, twice during lunchtimes and once during the evening; at each session a speaker is invited to reflect upon their ideas as they develop, and to use the discussion space for the exploration of their own questions. Session topics located within diverse disciplines are encouraged. At least one seminar each term addresses LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer) research. The session held in the evening is followed by drinks in the Institute of Education Student Union bar.
