To mark the launch of a new podcast series 'Women at War and its Aftermath', this event features a discussion led by the two podcast hosts, combined with listening to samples of the story-based podcast (45 minutes). It concludes with a Q&A session (20 minutes). This in person event will take place in the intimate and stylish Sheffield cafe, Elm.
Join us for the launch of the new story-based podcast 'Women at War and its Aftermath' at the intimate and stylish Sheffield cafe, Elm. The podcast series, co-hosted by Hanna Ketola and Swastika Kasaju, explores women as participants in war and the dilemmas of doing field research. The first season delves into stories of women involved in the Maoist 'People's War' in Nepal (1996-2006). This event will showcase excerpts of the podcast as well as a panel discussion with the hosts. Guests will be able to taste traditional Nepalese momos (small savoury dumplings), whilst hot and soft drinks, and a range of specialty wines will also be available to purchase and enjoy from Elm. The event will offer glimpses into the multiplicity of women’s experiences of war and pose questions about doing field research in conflict/post-conflict settings, all in a warm, friendly and relaxed environment. You can also find more information about the podcast, here: Women at War
The event is led by Hanna Ketola, a Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Sheffield and Co-host of the podcast, and Swastika Kasaju, an International Development practitioner and a Co-host of the podcast.
The event is open to all. Note: due to the topic (women and war, field research in conflict/post-conflict areas) the content might not be suitable for younger children.
The event welcomes anyone interested in understanding more about the roles of women in war. It may be of particular interest to students/prospective students planning to do field research or to study topics related to war/gender, as well as practitioners working in the fields of conflict/peacebuilding/development.
