1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Part of the School of Education Research Seminar Series 2023-24.

About the seminar

Vandana Singh and two Bath Spa alumni, Nathan Richardson and Rebecca Richardson, present their HEQR funded fieldwork in Nangi, Nepal. In this seminar they discuss their small-scale empirical investigation that employed photo-elicitation to report on the capabilities built by female pupils (aged 11-14) through primary schooling.

They focus on the Nangi village girls' gendered experiences in light of specific social, political and cultural influences, as well as gendered practices and pedagogies that contribute to the marginalisation of girls and women.
