The gender research network at the university of Erfurt aims to link scholars and students with an interest in gender, queer and diversity studies in an interdisciplinary way and to bring together cooperation partners for teaching and research projects. Besides regular meetings twice a semester for workshops and lectures, networkers also meet in working groups. The exchange of information and literature takes place via our email distribution list and our SharePoint platform.
Our interdisciplinary programme supports female doctoral students in the final phase of their doctorate as well as postdocs in planning their individual career path. During the twelve-month programme, the mentees network as peers and are individually advised by experienced professors from Thuringian universities in group mentoring sessions. Mentees continue their education together in selected workshops. The programme begins in early November 2020 and is funded by the Thuringian Competence Network for Equality.
