Dr Joan Forbes, Reader in Education at the University of Aberdeen, with Professor Gaby Weiner, University of Sussex, will give a paper at a seminar on Children's Rights, Social Justice and Social Identities in Scotland: Intersections in Research Policy and Practice to be held at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute in Glasgow on 23 June 2014.
The focus of this seminar, the third in a series of four, is on: Intersecting childhood identities, inequalities and social justice: intersectionality, methods and research, and the title of Forbes and Weiner’s paper is: Gender sensitive research in schools: gender, social class, economic wealth and intersectionality. The event is funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute and organised by academics at the universities of Edinburgh and Strathclyde, the Scottish Human Rights Commission, and the office of Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People.
Joan Forbes and Gaby Weiner’s paper is one of a series of outputs from the Scottish Funding Council supported Applied Educational Research Scheme, Schools and Social Capital Network, Scottish Independent Schools Project (SISP). The SISP studies investigate educational and social in/exclusions and their intersectionalities and seek to develop and apply innovative research methodologies.
