The Costs Incurred by the Politics of Belonging as an Academic Citizen: Questions of Gender and Intersectional Justice Within the University (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Within this talk I hope to bring to the fore the complex social processes that mediate, and are mediated by, the politics of belonging within the university. Questioning assumptions about the potential of policy to regulate change, I highlight insights from studies which have explored discourses and constructions of academic identity, citizenship and inclusion – to look at the agential consequences of negotiating power relations in the looming shadow of legacies of inequality, conflict and oppression.
