Event description
HDR Peer Network #1: Meet and Greet

About this Event

In 2020, Deakin GSS invites HDR students to codesign a series of workshops. In these student-led spaces, we hope 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.

These are also social times where postgraduate students can share coffee or lunch and learn more about the work other people are engaged in.

The first meeting of the GSS HDR Peer Network will be an opportunity to meet with others and design activities for postgraduate students in 2020. Questions will include: What kinds of events would you like to get involved in? Reading groups? Workshops where you can circulate drafts of your work for feedback? Academic skills workshops? Presentation spaces? Other types of events?

About the Speakers

We'll be joined by our new Lecturer in Gender and Sexuality Studies, Dr Gilbert Caluya. Some of you may have already met him from his presentation at a previous First Fridays. He specialises in feminist, queer, critical race/decolonial, and cultural theories and does research around race, intimacy and security. Gilbert has also been heavily involved in the RHD development space. Between the University of Melbourne, University of South Australia and the University of Sydney, Gilbert has run multiple workshops (such as: publication planning, how to find your academic identity, networking, writing (general), writing for publication, grant writing, how to do interviews and how to create an academic CV and use it for professional development, among others). He's really keen to find out about your projects and your research and career interests and to see how he can be useful to the HDR peer network. He has a couple of ideas, but he'd love to hear what you want and need first.
