Designed for gender researchers, this preconference addresses challenges, both in research (e.g., how to incorporate more fluid notions of gender and intersectionality in theory and research) and professional life (e.g., backlash against teaching about gender) that gender researchers may experience. The preconference will also highlight recent research in topical areas (e.g., intersectionality, gender identity, women in STEM) and will incorporate opportunities to promote new connections between established and younger researchers in the field. We have held two previous gender preconferences in 2016 and 2017, with high attendance at each.
