Professor Maria H. A. Jaschok FGCA (PhD London/SOAS), formerly Director of the International Gender Studies Centre at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford (2000–2018), is currently a Senior Research Associate of the Contemporary China Studies Programme in the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies, and Supervisor and Tutor for Master’s in Women’s Studies. She was a visiting professor at King’s College, London, 2019–2021.
Together with Professor Tobe Levin von Gleichen, Prof. Jaschok aims to establish a fully-fledged five-year academic programme combining study, grounded theorizing and application (for uses in education and in outreach). Building on extensive scholarship and advocacy in the field of epistemic injustice and embodied gender performances, new areas of interpretation and activism will be derived from longitudinal research based on cross-cultural as well as multi-disciplinary approaches combined with innovative uses of multi-media technology and educational applications. The programme (working title: ‘Female Bodies and Patriarchal Inscriptions across Cultural Contexts and Girlhood/s; a multiple-voice, multi-media, cross-cultural research project on human rights violations, cultural traditions, female genital mutilation, body modification, self-harm and self-empowerment’) is to be based at the Arts and Humanities Research Institute, King’s College.
