Episode 15 is an engaging and heated discussion between Poppy Gerrard Abbott and Amy Andrada, both PhD sociology candidates in the School of Social and Political Science. Poppy and Amy discuss issues such as the role of teaching from a feminist perspective, the link between feminist activism and teaching, and the place of peer support in the University. Amongst many other topics, they question the structural restraints around being a mother in academia, and delve into the way we use deficient language to describe these situations. They describe what sisterhood means to them, and ask if The University of Edinburgh has a ‘feminist’ community, as well as debating the emotional labour of building such a community.
