Keynote Address: Dr. Zowie Davy, University of Lincoln
Conference Hosts: Prof. Yvette Taylor & Ellis Morgan, University of Strathclyde
Transgender and non-binary people are in the public eye more than ever before but rates of suicides, hate crime and school and workplace bullying leave no doubt that widespread social marginalisation persists. This cultural complexity produces important responsibilities for those of us seeking to represent transgender and non-binary people’s experiences in our research. The focus of this seminar is to explore how we can best equip ourselves as researchers to meet this responsibility.
This seminar will address these key questions:
- What methodological challenges arise in relation to defining, accessing and researching transgender and non-binary populations? And how do we begin to meet these challenges?
- How do we ensure ethical and caring research processes and avoid reproducing social marginalisation in our work?
- What partnerships are needed, within and beyond academia to create useful dialogues, embed knowledge exchange and maximise the positive social impact of our research?
In addition to the keynote address a panel of early career researchers will explore varied methodological issues and a panel of trans and non-binary community organisations (Michelle Ross, CliniQ; Serge Nicholson, Galop; Gemma Rae Moncrieff, Non-Binary Scotland) will stimulate discussion on partnership working and knowledge exchange.
