Assuming Gender


Assume

  • ‘To adopt, choose, elect, to some position’
  • ‘To take upon oneself, put on (a garb, aspect, form, or character)’
  • ‘To lay claim to, appropriate, arrogate, usurp’
  • ‘To take for granted as the basis of argument or action’ (OED)

“Assuming Gender is a Cardiff University project, comprising a journal, seminar, and lecture series. This interdisciplinary project is dedicated to the timely analysis of constructions of gendered texts, practices, and subjectivities and seeks to engage with contemporary conceptions of gender, while participating in the dialogues and tensions that maintain the urgency of such conversations.”

The inaugural issue includes the article

“Entering Elizabeth: Eating And Gender At The Elizabethan Court”
