Welcome to the website of the ‘Is gender still relevant?’ event. The conference took place in Sept 2014. Please find below relevant records from the event, including videos of many of our speakers.

Despite over 30 years of campaigning and policy, why does gender remain a key issue today?

The ‘Is Gender Still Relevant?’ seminar, sponsored by the British Academy, examined the state of play in gender research in the historic disciplines, and asked if (and why) we still need to debate gender issues, including feminism, masculism and gender fluidity.

The event discussed both research and academic practice and welcomed participation from all career stages, particularly early career scholars. We were also keen on perspectives from all genders – this isn’t just about women!
