HDR Peer Network

The HDR Peer Network hopes to cultivate writing groups, reading circles and presentations of emerging work, as well as grow a strong network of peers working in Gender and Sexuality Studies. In 2021, we are organising an end-of-year Symposium for postgraduates to present unfinished works-in-progress, practice their paper presentations, and network across disciplines and schools.
