Research Workshop at University of St Andrews

Our first workshop will be structured around critical perspectives on menstruation, menstrual scholarship (in the humanities, sciences, and beyond), and menstrual discourse and policy, including the 2018 roll-out of the Scottish government plan to end period poverty. Speakers will present 'position papers' aimed at introducing their expertise, their critical take on menstruation, and their goals for the year. Hosted by Dr Røstvik at the University of St Andrews, the workshop will reflect the institution's strong reputation for humanities, but also include speakers from the sciences, who will be asked to share their expertise on menstruation culture, discourse and research. The afternoon will be dedicated to discussing collaboration, funding opportunities, and key research questions for the year.
