The keynote speaker for Roles 7th Annual Conference will be Dr. Katharine Jenkins, who will be presenting ‘Gender Identity: A Guide for the Perplexed’ - see https://groles.wordpress.com/2017/03/05/roles-2017-keynote-announced-dr-katharine-jenkins/.
The conference will take place in Gisbert Kapp building at University of Birmingham. The morning panels will be on third floor in room with flat floors and fixed seating, and the keynote talk and afternoon panels will be on the second floor, in a room with raked fixed seating and designated wheelchair spaces. The building does not have level access at the main entrance, though there is a permanent easy slope, and the rear entrance has a lift and step access with handrails. Inside the building the different floors can be accessed with lifts and stairs with handrails. Quiet rest spaces and gender neutral toilets will be available. Unfortunately we cannot subsidise travel costs.
