NEXT SEXGEN SEMINAR!

Migration, gender and sexuality: Negotiating health, wellbeing and belonging

7 July 2016, University of Glasgow

The aim of this seminar is to explore the intersections of gender, sexuality, migration and health and wellbeing. We see health and wellbeing as including experiences of physical and mental health, but also as related to wider understandings of security, belonging and rights. This seminar will feature presentations by researchers and practitioners who work in and around migration, health, sexuality and/or gender. Presenters will talk about their work on mixed panels, with the aim of sharing insights from research, practitioners’ and community work.
