The Eleanor Glanville Centre will host a Glanville Lecture on 3rd of July!
My brilliant career – and other stories
Invited speaker is Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas is Senior Research Fellow and Project Manager for Athena SWAN at Birmingham City University, UK.
Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas is Senior Research Fellow and Project Manager for Athena SWAN at Birmingham City University, UK. Kate specialises in interdisciplinary enquiry into higher education, gender and inequalities and has a particular interest in social geography and spatial research methods.
Kate’s current research, titled Gender(s) At Work, investigates how gender shapes experiences of employment and career in higher education. This research is aligned with Kate’s involvement in the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all staff within the sector. In this presentation, Kate introduces and reports on her research, but also traces the choices and transitions within her own ‘career’; mapping experiences and ideas which have led her to challenge and critique the taken for granted in all her research. As a poet and cartoonist, Kate also shares some of her recent experiments with the poetic and the visual as ways to further explore and communicate her research findings.
