“I am feeling overwhelmed with my analysis”, “Am l a researcher or an activist?”, “Why as a woman am I studying men?”, “The stories from my data collection are so overwhelming”. These are some of the situations that the Critical Studies in Sexuality and Reproduction (CSSR) colloquium, held in the Psychology Department on the 10th and 11th September 2014, addressed. There were a total of 16 participants and 14 presentations. The research topics included sexual violence, abortion decision-making, nursing practice and teenage pregnancy. The presenters included Masters’ students in Psychology, Journalism and Pharmacy, PhD candidates in Psychology, and post-doctoral fellows. Professor Macleod opened the colloquium citing the importance of having such interrogative/ critical reflective spaces for research.
