2nd April 2019

A new research network called Perspectives from the Edges of Exclusion and Punishment(PEEP) has launched to support Early Career Researchers (ECRs).

The network has been launched by Dr Cara Jardine (Strathclyde) and Dr Louise Brangan (Stirling) as a supportive space where members can forge solidarity between ECRs from across disciplines and generate the creative energy needed to conduct individual and collaborative academic work.

There is an open call for abstracts for three half-day workshops to be held this summer where ECRs can refine and advance work-in-progress, such as articles, book chapters, book proposals etc.

All participants are expected to attend each workshop and will be asked to present a 20 minute paper on one of these three days:

  • 23 May at the University of Edinburgh, this will be concluded with a plenary from Professor Tony Platt  (Berkeley): Activism, Academia and The Carceral State: Lessons from the United States
  • 24 June at the University of Strathclyde, this will be concluded with a plenary from Dr Órla Murray (Edinburgh): Sustaining Scholarship Through Solidarity: Negotiating the Neoliberal University
  • 26 July University of Stirling, this session will be concluded with a roundtable: where to from here?

To join PEEP, please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to Cara Jardine cara.jardine@strath.ac.uk or Louise Brangan louise.brangan@stir.ac.uk by Friday 19 April.  

PEEP has been made possible through generous funding from the SCCJR.
