Gender and Fieldwork

BSc Environmental Science Fieldclass

BSc Environmental Science Fieldclass at “Gruffy Ground”, near Shipham

In 2014/15, the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Science is embarking on a year-long project to examine the gendered experiences of fieldwork, ranging from our undergraduate students on fieldclasses to postgraduate students and staff doing field research. Our intention is to capture what it means to be a SAGES fieldworker in the 21st century and understand the commonalities and differences between male and female participation in fieldwork.

An important date for your diaries is Wednesday 29th April 2015. It’s for an event not to be missed: a public lecture hosted by the Department of Geography and Environmental Science, funded by a bequest from Norma Wilkinson, a University of Reading alumna.  This year devoted to our School theme of Gender and Fieldwork. More exciting details about our speaker for 2015 to follow soon! Click here for information about distinguished speakers from previous years.

Here are some members of our team from the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Sciences.
