Annual Report 2022, ECER Yerevan and ECER Plus

  • The Network special call “Education in a Changing World: The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of educational research” attracted interest in the Gender and Education Network resulting in a large number of submissions. Feedback on and discussions about contributions and their presentation was very useful and helpful for the Network future activities. It was agreed by all present that the quality of the papers, presentations and power points was generally high and people were engaged with the debates. Talks were well timed and debates were interesting. The number of contributions and the quality of their presentation testify that, despite all the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that ECER 2022 was held in two moments and two formats, the Network performed very well. Important contribution was made by all, including the Link Convenor Deputies, NW 33 Convenors, Chairpersons, Reviewers and Members and all of them should be acknowledged. The issue regarding the role the Network could have in supporting colleagues newer to gender and education research was also raised and discussed. In addition, it was felt by one or two members that we have not really contextualised within a more comprehensive conceptualisation of gender. Themes were not positioned in relation to LGBTQI+ and other intersecting gender identities in many papers which were cis-gender. We discussed ideas regarding the Network’s role in framing the call for papers in ways that let people know the expectations regarding contextualisation and framing and offering support for people who need it.
  • NW33 Speciall call for the Yerevan ECER was written and published on the Network’s website under the title: “Education in a Changing World: The impact of global realities on the prospects and experiences of educational research”.
  • A capacity building workshop for emerging researchers „Introducing the Gender and Education Network: the Importance of Feminist Theory and Transdisciplinarity for Educational Research“ was delivered by Carol Taylor, Andrea Abbas, and Victoria Showunmi. As result of continuous cooperation with the Emerging Researchers Group, a significant number of young researchers participate in the NW sessions.
  • Carol Tylor co-authored a post titled: „Walking together apart – how mobile material methods can help us think towards better educational futures” by Bastos, Hogarth, Taylor, Barr, Barratt-Hacking, Cranham, Hewlett.
Each network holds a Network Meeting during ECER and invites interested researchers to join. We have collected the network meeting minutes.
