Videos of a presentation I gave at the Trans* Education and Determination teach-in at King's College London last month are now available. It was a pretty strange experience, as I was talking about my research at an event that (quite deliberately) wasn't entirely academic. I therefore had an interesting balance to strike between staying true to my research and ensuring that the talk was accessible.
My presentation was hardly polished, but I feel it went pretty well on the whole. I managed to convey a lot of information whilst keeping people broadly interested. There's a fair amount I could have done better (particularly in terms of being a lot more careful about how I outlined the ethical issues bound up in internet research) but I'm pleased that I've had the opportunity to learn from this experience even as I shared my perspective with others.
