GLADshop Meetings

Since its establishment in 2007, GLAD has worked to support and enhance research and teaching in the broad field of Law & Gender in the Law School.

The purpose of the GLADshop meetings is to create a supportive learning environment in which postgraduate research students and academic staff can discuss and develop their research. The meetings take place throughout the term, over lunchtime. At each GLADshop, either one speaker talks about their research for 30 minutes or two speakers give a 15 minute “provocation” on an aspect of their research. By keeping the presentation short, the intention is to create a context for pithy, edgy, provocative presentations which tackle substantive issues in the field of gender, sex and sexualities and set the tone for lively discussion. It is hoped that these informal meetings will generate a creative scholarly environment in which the experiences and outcomes of undertaking research in general, and law & gender research in particular, are shared.

GLADshop meeting are usually head on Tuesday lunchtimes (1-2pm). All are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Laura Graham (
