This one-day, interdisciplinary event aims to bring together diverse perspectives from academics and postgraduate students researching in the field of gender, crime and media. As well as panel presentations, there will also be the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions. This participatory format will foster a dialogue between attendees and provide a networking opportunity and a platform for knowledge exchange.

·       Media representations of honour crimes/ violence
·       The abuse of women online
·       Revenge porn
·        Social media and violence against women
·       Young people and sexting
·        Feminist methodologies in media research

Presentations are expected to be no longer than 20 minutes with the opportunity for 10 minutes of questions. Abstracts of 250 words are now welcome and the final date for submission will be Friday 6th May 2016.
