Calling researchers, advocates, and artists!
In collaboration with the Menstruation Research Network, this one-day event at the University of Sheffield will focus on media narratives about menstruation and related topics. It will bring together researchers in the fields of journalism and media studies, individual advocates, and representatives from NGOs. The event will take place at the University of Sheffield on 22nd October 2021, but this will be changed to an online format if necessary.
We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Annika Waheed. Annika is a non-clinical lecturer for Barts Health Trust in London and suffers from Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, a condition that she describes as 'PMS's woefully misunderstood Satanic sibling'. She advocates, educates, and raises awareness via her Instagram page on which she candidly records her journey living with PMDD.
The day will also include 15-minute papers and workshops. Papers/ workshop sessions are free to explore any type of media (such as blogs, zines, podcasts, apps, websites, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, newspapers, magazines, radio, cinema).
Topics could include (but are not limited to) the following mediatised aspects of menstrual experience:
- Menstrual inequalities
- Period Poverty
- Menstrual Stigma
- Menstrual products
- The Environment (such as the impact of plastic products)
- Transgender and non-binary identities
- Ethnic minority groups
- Menstrual health (such as PMDD or endometriosis)
- Education (such as in schools)
If you would like to propose either a 15-minute presentation or a 45-minute workshop, please submit an abstract/ summary of up to 300 words along with a brief bio to the organisers Dr. Maria Tomlinson at firstname.lastname@example.org and Lottie Rhodes at C.Rhodes2@newcastle.ac.uk. The submission deadline is Friday 4th June.
There is a limited amount of funding available for travel expenses for speakers/ workshop leaders (within the UK) who are students, ECRs, or unemployed. The event is supported by the Leverhulme Trust and will be free to attend.

Affinity Space #Ethnography: Exploring #QualitativeMethods for Studying #OnlineSpaces"; Thursday March 18th from 7.00-8:30PM EST #SQIP Virtual Salon
Thursday March 18th from 7-8:30PM EST: "Affinity Space Ethnography: Exploring Qualitative Methods for Studying Online Spaces"
[you can check your time zone at https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com ]
Affinity spaces are sites of informal learning where groups — perhaps knitters and fiber artists, fans of a movie or game, or members of a writing circle — interact around a "common endeavor" (Gee, 2004, p. 85). They may be physical, virtual or blended spaces, and they are often spread across many "portals" of conversation and action, such as social media hashtags, face-to-face meetings, message boards, blogs, or web pages. This salon brings education researchers who specialize in the exploration of writing and other literacy practices in online spaces into conversation with our qualitative psychology research community to examine connections and to learn from each other. Based on a decade of collaborative and individual research, the panelists have developed and continue to refine qualitative methods for tracing participation and understanding interaction in online spaces. What we have observed is that despite physical and temporal separation, members of online affinity spaces work and learn together, often establishing meaningful relationships; co-authoring artifacts; and maintaining sites, communities, or hashtags. To trace the development of affinity spaces and what participants learn from taking part in them, we examine the complex artifacts and texts that constitute online and blended social practices.
The panelists will begin by collectively introducing affinity space ethnography (Lammers, et al., 2012). Then each will share a snapshot of how they have implemented this methodology in various studies and what this work looks like. These snapshots explore questions about how to make initial research design decisions that guide the study of complex networked spaces, how participants traverse different tools or parts of online spaces, and how youth writers move between online and face-to-face spaces to develop their craft. Discussant Ashley Maynard, director of the Culture and Human Development Lab at the University of Hawai`i, will then provide comment, and audience members will have the opportunity for Q&A.
