Time and Space for Embodied Feminist Pedagogies in the Classroom?

by Aisling Walsh

For the Spanish language version of this text, please go to page 2 (navigation below “Related” articles)

Late one afternoon in the final semester of my undergraduate degree in Sociology & Politics, I was sitting in an almost full lecture hall, transfixed by lecturer’s explanation of Susan Moller Okin’s thesis from ‘Justice, Gender and the Family’. Instead of my […]

    Reconsidering the relationship between domestic workplaces and ‘homes’ in Chile during COVID-19

Reconsidering the relationship between domestic workplaces and ‘homes’ in Chile during COVID-19

by Carol Chan

The COVID-19 pandemic gave rise to the ‘shadow pandemic’ of domestic violence, where, due to the fears of contagion and mobility restrictions in many cities the world over, persons experiencing intimate partner or familial violence had fewer alternatives to seek respite from abuse. The pandemic revealed how the ‘home as dwelling’ is a complex space: at times […]

Liminalities of time and its flashes

by Kashi Syal

1.

Blossom acts as a seasonal clock even before daylight savings. Spring comes and the days stretch. Every April, I think about T.S Eliot’s bankers walking over London Bridge trying not to jump, the minutiae of a life measured by coffee spoons, all of Plath’s unlived lives. Up Bond Street, Clarissa Dalloway has the oddest sense of being […]

Apostrophe

by Claire Wilmot

          i. polemic

Look I know this one hits different, but I’m writing to tell you I’m tired of asking is this it? with every new blip in crisis time, tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop only to realize that both have fallen already, might keep falling forever. And just cause […]

Clubbing without the club

by Nina Bo Wagner

NB: see at the bottom of this article for a mix from the London rave scene, for optional listening while reading.

The club as a location would seem inherent to clubbing. However, during lockdown in London these locations were made unavailable. As a result, clubbing temporarily moved exclusively online. At this time, I wanted to undertake documenting queer […]

Daily Exercise

By Becka White

A slightly different route today for our daily exercise. My six-year-old’s school has invited us to collect some seeds ‘to plant in the garden’. I tell my son they forgot to add ‘or on the windowsill’. I wonder how many other flat-dwelling parents noticed this wording – after all, one in five households in London don’t have […]

Location: Interrupted — Special Series Announcement

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has been a world-altering event, one with fatal health, economic, political, and interpersonal consequences. It has also fundamentally disrupted – if not completely shattered – the ways in which many individuals and groups previously made sense of how they/ we understand and inhabit various locations. Here at Engenderings, we have been thinking about how the […]

Neglecting women’s needs: A recipe for disaster

by Simona Camillini 

In the wake of the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti on 12 January 2010, the Haiti Gender Shadow Report highlighted the failure to involve women in the disaster management process. I investigated what hindered women’s engagement in the post-earthquake response planning and implementation, what this entailed and how women nevertheless contributed to the relief and reconstruction efforts.

    What anti-gender and anti-vaccines politics have in common – the construction of gender and the Covid-19 pandemic in right-wing discourses

What anti-gender and anti-vaccines politics have in common – the construction of gender and the Covid-19 pandemic in right-wing discourses

By Ann-Kathrin Rothermel

In the first week of 2022, I was invited to give a guest lecture about anti-gender activism and the role of the university in and for right-wing discourses and mobilization strategies[i]. To prepare for the talk, I went back to the literature on the anti-gender movements, which mobilized around the concept of ‘gender ideology’ in Europe and […]

by Hasret Cetinkaya

In it, we publish teach-outs delivered by our friends and colleagues at the LSE Department of Gender Studies in December 2021, as they withdrew their labour from the LSE in the first week […]
