AtGender Early Career Researchers (ECR) working group aims at fostering peer-support for scholars in gender studies and across disciplines with an interest in gender. It seeks to create a productive space for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers through events, both with informal meetings between ECRs and with practical tips from experienced scholars. If you would like to suggest an idea for an event, feel free to get in touch with us. Links to past events and information on upcoming ones can be found below or at the AtGender Youtube Channel.
