Congratulations to Elsa Bengtsson Meuller, doctoral student in Politics and International Relations, who has been awarded the Iris-Grant (Irisstipendiet) from the Iris Jonzén-Sandblom & Greta Jonzén’s Foundation in Sweden. The grant is awarded to women whose work will positively contribute to the lives of other women.
Elsa’s research explores feminist cybersecurity and analyses gender-based violence. She seeks to develop a feminist methodology for the study of anti-feminist online cultures. Her thesis will present a feminist online ethnography of the Manosphere.

Peter Rees, PhD researcher in PIR working on citizenship, has recently guest co-edited an issue of the Graduate Journal of Social Science under title of ‘A Conversation Connecting Racism and Migration: International and Interdisciplinary Perspectives’: which can be found at http://gjss.org/15/01. The editors of the issue are all doctoral researchers and participants in the PhD Migration Reading Group at Goldsmiths. The issue explores, from a variety of angles, the relation between race and migration in contemporary experience and emerges from a symposium held at Goldsmiths in 2017.
