The Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies (NOG) hosts the annual National Research Day, held this year at the Graduate Gender Programme , Utrecht University. The NOG Research Day is a dedicated platform for sharing the work of junior and senior researchers of Dutch universities in the fields of Gender, Race/Ethnicity, Sexuality and Diversity Studies. Faculty, Postdoctorate fellows, PhD candidates and Research Master students are cordially invited to participate in this event.
This year the National Research Day is called ‘Border and Bridges: Cultural Translation and Travelling Theories’.
The Doing Gender in the Netherlands Research Day is open for presentations by Faculty, Postdoctorate fellows, PhD candidates and Research MA students registered at Dutch universities. All are cordially invited to participate in this event and send proposals for paper presentations. There are several options to participate:
- As a presenter of a 15 min. paper
- As a session moderator
- As a participant without paper presentation
Through the presentation of work-in-progress from the current generation of gender scholars, the NOG research days seek to both monitor and critique national developments and contemporary discussions within the field. It is not required to be a member of NOG in order to participate, but we do encourage new members to join by emailing the NOG office. Membership includes a monthly newsletter and access to NOG events (including earning graduate training credit).
