Who's Here? Who's Queer?

Description

This event celebrates queerness by encouraging LGBTIQ+ ECRs to carve out space for themselves within academia, and begin to create networks that resist the confines of spaces and places. Through this virtual event, we want to craft a more homely academic space for queer ECRs; we ask you to participate from locations in which you feel ‘at home’ to think through creating and reimagining spaces and sources to be ourselves in academia (acknowledging that many of us are constrained in our choices in this respect during Covid19). We used creative practices to queer and play with written (including draft and unfinished) work; motivations for being in academia; and making connections with each other (we seek to reimagine the typical ECR focus of publications; career trajectories; and networking).

This event was funded by the BSA (£1000)
