Tools and Resources

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. Here you have a collection of resources and tools that can assist you in staying organised, writing efficiently, and enjoying the process along the way. The list is a collaborative effort so if you have any ideas, feel free to get in touch with us to share. See what other ECR’s have said about their challenges in writing and what strategies they use to overome them here!
