Hive for Feminist Research

The Hive for Feminist Research is an interdisciplinary research group formed in 2013 to increase the visibility and understanding of feminist research at StFX in all its diversity.  This research network brings together members from all four faculties—arts, business, education, and science—as well as the Angus L. Macdonald Library, the Coady International Institute, Service Learning, and the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health.  The Hive defines feminist research broadly as a type of inquiry concerned with understanding relations of power, particularly those based on gender as it intersects with race, sexuality, class, and ability.   Feminist research occurs in disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts, and deploys a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches.  The network meets frequently throughout the academic year and features presentations on diverse topics of study, demonstrating the breadth of feminist research at StFX.  The Hive is interested in a range of research outcomes and presentations, including presenting a research paper, activist research, creative work (e.g. fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, artworks, performance), etc., and is open to hearing about research in all stages (from concept, to work in in progress, to final results).  The Hive for Feminist Research also organizes an annual invited lecture.
