Current Research Project

An international collaborative study of the feminist imaginary as pedagogical tool for epistemic justice, resistance and change in communities, universities, and women’s, gender and feminist libraries, museums and heritage sites

SSHRC Funded Project

2022 – 2027

This five-year international collaborative feminist study and activist project will bring together, for the first time, women’s, gender and feminist museum, library and heritage site curators, educators and practitioners with feminist adult educators and researchers working in communities and universities. Together, we will explore how our two similar yet distinct groups are conceptualising and operationalising the feminist imaginary as a critical feminist pedagogical contribution to a decolonised gender-just world. Our study is conceptualised using broad understandings and intersectional lenses of gender, women, and sexuality and the impacts heteropatriarchal colonial practices of exclusion, oppression, and misrepresentation have on these populations.
