As the new academic year approaches it is time to say goodbye to our 2018/19 postgraduate rep, Sumner Braund. Sumner has been a brilliant member of the CGIS team, organising a range of events and activities last year. We thank her for all her hard work.
For 2019/20 two new Postgraduate Reps will be joining the CGIS Steering Committee, Zoe Nunn and Alice Raw. Welcome both – we can’t wait to work with you.
Zoe Nunn is a first year History DPhil candidate. She looks at how transvestite communities formed during the Weimar period and analyses how they subsequently faired under Nazi rule. Her Masters research focused on the subjective experiences of cross-dressers in inter-war Britain, and she will continue to use a subjective framework in her doctorate work. More broadly, her academic focus is on modern queer and gender experiences, specifically gender non-conformity, same-sex attraction, and masculinity.
Alice Raw is a third year DPhil candidate and Lecturer in History. The focus of her work is gender and sexual discourse in late medieval England, in particular texts that explore pleasure and consent. She is also one of the Postgraduate Representatives for the History Faculty Gender and Equality Working Group.
Do get in contact with Zoe and Alice if you’d like to get more involved with CGIS – or have an idea for CGIS postgrad events.
