The Network’s sessions, symposia and workshops at the Hamburg ECER were well attended, quality of the papers, presentations and power-points was very good, people were well prepared, slides were clear, talks well timed and debates were interesting. The formats could allow more time for discussion. The increased number of contributions and the quality of the presentations indicate a growing interest in gender, sexes and sexualities. The Network had a special call on intersectional perspective on gender inequalities in education: “Shifting narratives of gender inequalities through the lens of intersectionality”. The call opened space for papers exploring cross-cutting divisions that shape current gendered education systems as well as papers providing a critical discussion on adequacy of theoretical and methodological approaches for exploring complexity of gender inequality in today’s society. The researchers’ response to the call was very positive resulting in an increased number of contributions, including contributions from young researchers. The Network’s sessions and symposia pointed to the relevance of LGBTQ+ presentations suggesting that the Network needed to be overtly open to LGBT+ research and communities. A joint session with the Network Health and Wellbeing Education was especially valuable and well received. It was effective format of collaboration of researchers from different disciplines enabling a more comprehensive coverage of gender issues and providing an opportunity for further collaboration. A very important conference activity of the Network was the workshop for emerging researchers: “Researching gender and education in Europe: A workshop for emerging researchers and doctoral students”. The workshop was well attended and vibrant and enthusiastic discussion was generated, which is an impetus for further collaboration with emerging researchers.
