This episode features Dr Heather Lovatt, the Centre’s Director, discussing the Centre’s interests in the area of “working with men” and providing listeners with a snapshot of the season ahead. Appointed QCDFVR Director in March 2018, Heather has led a diverse range of research projects relating to gendered violence. She currently oversees the Centre’s work, which has a practice orientation across each of its three linked domains - research, education/training, sector development. Heather has a particular interest in applied research that has a social impact; ensuring the knowledge and wisdom of those impacted by gendered violence, priority populations and front-line practitioners are prioritised.
In each episode of The Bulb, the podcast will explore aspects of gendered violence – what is thought about it, what we know about it, and what is yet to be revealed.
