The Eleanor Glanville Centre’s next Be Inspired! Lecture: “My Brilliant Career – and other stories” Dr Kate Thomas, Birmingham City University, will take place Tuesday 3rd July
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
