Wired Up: Digital media as innovative socialization practices for migrant youth

Wired Up was a Utrecht University High Potential research programme. This interdisciplinary research programme focused on how new digital media practices involving the Internet (e.g., information seeking, instant messaging, chat, web logs, the production and distribution of multi-media) impact on the lives, identities, learning and socialisation of migrant youth.

EU FP6 Marie Curie Early Stage Training: GenderGraduates

The Marie Curie Fellowships in the field of gender studies granted early stage researchers access to a training programme offered by a network of European universities. Acclaimed for high expertise in gender research and education, partner institutions jointly trained and exchanged junior PhD students. The Marie Curie Early Stage Training Scheme was designed to encourage international mobility and, therefore, carried an enhanced salary/stipend package.
