MA in Gender, Media & Culture

This MA introduces you to recent debates on gender in the disciplines of sociology and media and communications studies, and to the interdisciplinary domains of feminist social and cultural theory. Drawing on the internationally recognised and pioneering expertise of staff in the Department of Sociology and Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies, as well as the Centre for Feminist Research (CFR), the programme offers you the opportunity to develop cutting-edge critical skills in relation to cultural approaches to gender formation and gender theory.

As well as these theoretical and analytical points of orientation, the MA in Gender, Media and Culture aims to help you grasp the importance of epistemology and methodology for the evaluation of empirical investigations of gender formations. The programme therefore introduces you to, and offers training in, the key socio-cultural methods for the study of gender in the contemporary world, including methods for the study of visual culture; the body and affect; and memory.

The Feminist Postgraduate Forum

The Feminist Postgraduate Forum (FPF) has been set up to support feminist research students at Goldsmiths. The FPF is primarily student led but is convened by Yasmin Gunaratnam. The PG student coordinator is Chloe Turner who is the current Centre for Feminist Research Administrator and MRes Visual Cultures student. Activities thus far have included reading groups and conference preparation as well as providing a space for research students at different stages of their projects to present their work to an informal, friendly, feminist group.

This coming term the Forum is hoping to include more film screenings, 'public feeling' discussions and engagement with creative practices. All suggestions are welcome for future Forum meetings.

If you would like to become a member of the of the FPF please email Chloe Turner (c.turner@gold.ac.uk

The Network is currently convened by Yasmin Gunaratnam and Louise Rondel. Louise is a PhD researcher in the Centre for Urban and Community Research, Goldsmiths and teaches at the University of Middlesex.
