The doctoral course entitled “Acedemic and Creative Writing: Epistemologies, Methodologies, Writing Practices” was organized by Women’s Studies Centre in cooperation with Nordic Research School in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies at the University of £ód¼ in June 2007. Focusing on multiple links between writing practices, feminist epistemologies and methodologies, it offered a platform for reflection and discussion of the ways in which these relations can be productive for feminist theories and institutional development of gender and women’s studies.Feminist writings have always constituted a vibrant field of expressive experimentation. Luce Irigaray, Hélene Cixous or Donna Haraway have effectively deconstructed traditional separation between academic and creative writing.
The course provided an overview of some of these discussions and their gynealogies in feminist theories as well as encouraged participants to reflect on their own writing practices through creative presentations of the framework of their doctoral research.

The course consisted of three types of sessions:
1) lecture-discussion sessions,
2) writing workshops,
3) group sessions with presentations of students' papers, where students were given the opportunity to present their doctoral research, reflect on their writing practices and receive comments from teachers and co-participants.

Teachers:
Prof. Elæbieta H. Oleksy, Poland,
Dr. Kathy Davis, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands,
Prof. Sissel Lie, Norway,
Prof. Nina Lykke, Sweden.

Coordinators:
Prof. Elæbieta H. Oleksy - in collaboration with Research School leader, Prof. Nina Lykke.
The event was organized in collaboration with Marie Curie funded project GENDERGRADUATES.
