Event details

We would like to invite you to attend our Gender & Digital Culture event on Friday, 8 November, 2-5pm, being hosted by, and linked simultaneously between, the University of Southampton & the University of York. The event will discuss the implications and risks of the professional use of digital media, looking at how this most ubiquitous aspect of modern working life (i.e., online communication) profoundly affects our everyday professional engagements--sometimes in deeply harmful ways.

We're hopeful that you can join us on Friday 8 November to:

- Share your experiences of professional life in the digital world

- Hear the results from our preliminary survey of the experiences of 400 professionals

- Host a lively and informal discussion of the issues surrounding gendered behaviour online

- Work towards developing practical strategies for individuals and organisations to manage the challenges presented by the digital public workplace


The event will take place on Friday 8th November between 2 and 5 pm, and will be jointly hosted between the University of York and the University of Southampton, at Southampton's Highfield Campus, Building 34, Room 3019, and at York's Heslington Hall, Room H/G21.


It will simultaneously be live-streamed on

The programme will begin with a presentation by Dr Sara Perry of the University of York, and with introductions by Lucy Shipley and Jim Osborne of the University of Southampton, followed by an informal discussion between both sites, a review of existing institutional policies, a series of break-out sessions, ending in a wine reception at both York and Southampton.


We would be absolutely delighted if you could attend the event, and hope very much to see you there - in person or via social media through Twitter or Google Plus or YouTube. We would be grateful if you could let us know if you are interested in attending. Your experiences and insights are essential to the success of our project and to developing guidance and support for other professionals in academia and beyond.


Best regards,

Lucy Shipley, Jim Osborne and Sara Perry
