Throughout the semester we’ve hosted a series of research seminars exploring queerness and research. For our first session, in March 2017, we welcomed our visiting scholar Jo Henderson-Merrygold to share a bit about her research and what motivates her to do it. She’s currently undertaking a PhD in Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield, UK, and her work focuses on developing genderqueer and trans* reading strategies. She is also co-director of Hidden Perspectives in the UK.
