Network News

  • The PGRNS blog is starting to get on its feet. Right now we are focused on keeping a running list of events and conferences as well as provide a way for members to share their work and get in touch. To that end we post all of our newsletters to the blog. We also have a google calendar with reminders about deadlines for cfps and funding opportunities. We have a page marked out for ‘making connections’. We would like to use this page to post bios of our members with information about where they study and the kind of research they are carrying out. If you would like to have your bio included please email it to us at along with a photo if you’d like that included as well.


To Get Involved and Stay in Touch

  • Follow us on Twitter @PGRNScotland
  • Email us at to join the mailing list or Facebook group, tell us about an event or CFP, suggest a project, organise a pub night etc.
  • Join our Facebook group: Post-graduate Gender Research Network of Scotland – it is a semi-private group so you must email us if you want to join.
