About the Event

For the October Postgraduate Workshop, we invited HDRs (or soon to be HDRs) to a meet and greet with others in Gender and Sexuality Studies. The workshop was designed to be a space to meet with others and provide an opportunity for HDRs to brainstorm ideas for postgraduate student activities in 2020. Questions included: What kinds of events would you like to get involved in? Reading groups? Workshops where you can circulate drafts of your work for feedback? Academic skills workshops? Other types of events?
