Reinventing, Rethinking, and Representing Menopause: Beyond the Interdisciplinary Paradigm

This generation of women is starting to ask questions and talk about what they are experiencing. The predominant and prevailing message they receive is that the menopause is to be feared. A recent survey reveals that many women didn’t realise their symptoms were connected to the menopause resulting in miss diagnosis. Women also report experiencing increased incidence of depression, anxiety and social exclusion.

This conference will draw together scholars with knowledge of menopause with a broad interdisciplinary range.

The aim of the conference is to extend existing understandings of the menopause through the collective convergence of experts from creative and scholarly disciplines. It will provide an opportunity to work collectively and creatively to broaden and deepen the perception of the menopause and to start a process that will dispel ignorance and reduce fear for women in their menopausal years.

It will be a place for sharing knowledge, networking and generating critical thought.

Conference organised by CRASSH and Art at the ARB.
