Friday 4 January - Sunday 6 January

All day

West Downs Quarter, University of Winchester, Romsey Road, Hampshire SO22 5HT

Keynote speaker: Prof. Lucy Robinson, Professor of Collaborative History, University of Sussex

The spatial turn has led to significant revisions as scholars note how gender roles and identities are constructed along spatial lines, and the importance of place to experiences of the individual. This conference seeks to explore this from all disciplines, across all periods and locations.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Individual agency and the negotiation of space
• Locality, place, identity and community
• The home, the workplace, and places of leisure
• The rural and urban experience
• Material and digital spaces
• Bodies and representation
• Resistance, politics and transgression
• Gender and globalisation
• Intersectionality and the public sphere
