Workshop on Primary Sources and Approaches to researching histories of gender, identity, and subjectivity

Workshop: Tuesday 16th June 1pm via Teams

This workshop explores the range of sources available for researching histories of gender, identity, and subjectivity. Experienced researchers in the History Faculty will explain the particular rewards and challenges posed by the primary sources they use in their work, when seeking to understand diverse questions, places, and time periods. These talks include:
Grace Heaton: Making sense of oral history interviews
Mara Keire: Making sense of popular culture
Sian Pooley: Sources for marginalised lives
Lyndal Roper: Sources that look quite hopeless
The informal 10-minute talks will be followed by Q&A, and general discussion of the methodological or archival puzzles we all face in our work.
This workshop will be chaired by the CGIS undergraduate representatives - Samson Dittrich, Lara Garrett, Annabel Gee and Bethan Roberts - and is designed particularly for undergraduate students who are looking for tips or ideas when planning a thesis relating to gender, identity or subjectivity. All welcome! Email for the link to join the seminar.
