                                                                                                                                    Hannah’s PhD project, tentatively titled ‘Doing gender, making security policy’, examines how organisational cultures within UK government departments responsible for national security are shaped by gender, and how this influences the way officials think and speak about national security. It responds to feminist International Relations scholarship which identifies constructions of masculinities and femininities in national security discourses as making certain ways of thinking about national security appear natural and inevitable, while others seem unthinkable. Based on participant observation and interviews with UK officials, this project seeks to understand how men and women navigate these gendered organisational cultures, how they challenge or assimilate to them and what this means of feminist strategies to change the way national security is approached.

                                                                                                                                    Priya's research, provisionally titled 'Victimhood and Agency in Discourses of Sexual Violence: Undoing the Binary' seeks to track and interrupt the production of a conceptually untenable and politically pernicious dichotomy between victimhood and agency in dominant discourses of sexual violence. Analysing case law, legislative reform and feminist discourses of sexual violence in India, her work exposes the representational failures and erasures entailed in hegemonic representations of sexual violence, and demonstrates their damaging material effects. Her thesis also explores the potential of alternative, often precarious, subaltern archives as sites from which to ‘detoxify’ and redress the effects of dominant, binary representational regimes.

The talk analysed how the toxic culture of violence against women was epitomized during this period by the wave of murders of women that were attributed to the so-called 'Yorkshire Ripper' prior to the apprehension of perpetrator Peter Sutcliffe.

They usher Muslims into a spatial void. Occupying a space where law has declared its own absence, the banned Niqabi is denied the right to public space even as she is formally a citizen. What do bans provide to those who are compelled to engage in it?

In this roundtable, current LSE Gender PhD students discussed feminist engagements with the state in their work.

                                                                                                                                    This event is ticketed - see here for more information and to register.

                                                                                                                                    Attending our events

                                                                                                                                    Links to Eventbrite tickets will be available for our events - please check on the event listing for the Eventbrite link. Maps of the LSE campus are available here. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment as late-comers cannot be admitted once an event has started. 

                                                                                                                                    Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis for those with tickets. Not everyone who books uses their ticket, so, to ensure a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are places. We also run returns queues at the events and fill any empty seats with those waiting outside the theatre shortly before the start of the event. This usually means we have a full house without having to turn people away, but there may be occasions when we do have more people than seats available. Please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to avoid disappointment. Please note, tickets are not transferable- if you can't make it, and this means an empty place, then this would be allocated to someone waiting in the returns queue

                                                                                                                                    For most ticketed events some people from the returns queue do get in, but there is no guarantee of entry and the numbers vary from event to event. We always try to keep the returns queue updated on chances of getting in as it nears the start of the event.
