November events

So, I've been a bit quiet on this blog since June. I have been very busy, however - finishing my PhD! I'm very pleased to say that I passed my viva last week.

As a celebration of sorts, I'll be doing a lot of travelling in November to talk about my research. Here are the upcoming events where you can see me speak:

Saturday 12th November
GLADD Annual Conference 2016
University of Westminster

Title: An Adversarial Assessment? Addressing Mistrust Amongst Trans Patients

I will be talking about mistrust in healthcare settings, looking particularly at the context of assessment appointments are Gender Identity Clinics. This event is aimed at LGBT doctors, dentists, and health researchers.

My talk at TRED 2011

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.
