The HDR Peer Network brings together HDR/ECR students from across and beyond Deakin University to grow a strong network of peers working in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

In 2021, the HDR Peer Network will convene the Postgraduate/ECR Symposium: Imagining New Futures?

The GSSRN organises opportunities for HDR students to meet and collaborate, and to participate in themed workshops guided by experts in the field.

These workshops serve as spaces to discuss research methods, new directions in research and navigating the HDR journey. They are also social times where postgraduate students can meet each other and learn more about the work other people are engaged in.
