SRHE has recently published my guest blog reflecting on the graphic and poetic versions of my research findings and creating a unique research communication package – the #gwordtour.
Each time I present and re-present my research in different formats, I have the opportunity to revisit, to reconsider, to move beyond my initial analyses. I’m engaging in a slower, less linear, more cyclical version of research.
When I was writing the poetry sequence ‘Glass’, I did not imagine being invited to perform it at a major UK scientific research institute. However, today I was at the Wellcome Sanger Institute near Cambridge doing exactly that!
I’m very much looking forward to performing the poetic sequence Glass today for DMUWomen – the newly-formed women’s network at De Montfort University.
Two days later I was in Liverpool at the School of Tropical Medicine for the first event in the travelling research circus that is Gender(s) At Work!
Preparations are in full swing for the start of the g word tour – gender and graphics visiting at least 15 different sites in the UK over the next 6 months. I’ll be delivering presentations, workshops, performances and exhibitions focused on the findings of my research project ‘Gender(s) At Work’.
