The ECPR Standing Group on Gender and Politics is pleased to announce that the Fifth European Conference on Politics and Gender will be held 2017 June 8-10 in Lausanne, Switzerland and the University of Lausanne (UNIL).
Call for co-convenors of the ECPR Standing Group on Gender & Politics (ECPG)
ECPG are looking for new co-convenors!
We are looking for three dynamic, engaged individuals with a commitment to supporting the European-wide community of gender and politics scholars, and to further developing the advancement of the study of gender and politics within Europe.
Specifically, we are looking for:
Qualifications for the early career researcher:
Qualifications for the two convenors:
This is an excellent opportunity for gender and politics scholars to build their leadership skills and to develop their networks, both within the gender and politics field, but also within the wider ECPR community. ECPG has a limited budget but will cover the flights (within Europe) and accommodation costs for convenors to attend the biennial ECPG conference. It is an important role and one that is vital for our growing and diverse community.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, including their plans for the Standing Group, and an updated CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1st 2017.
During the selection process we will heed the diversity of scholars in the ECPG group.
More information on the Standing Group can be found at our website http://www.ecpg.eu
For further questions, please contact the current convenors Isabelle Engeli, and Elizabeth Evans by email email@example.com
ECPG Membership renewal
A message from ECPR:
Since the implementation of the Standing Group framework earlier this year, membership to each group will now be renewed on an annual basis. This is to ensure the membership list for each group remains current and active.
The renewal process will begin on 1 December, when each Standing Group member will be able to log in to their MyECPR account and renew their membership. In much the same way as initially joining the group, this process is as easy as the click of a button. Members simply need to click on the ‘My Groups’ tab, and select ‘Renew My Membership’ next to the name of the Standing Group. The process should take no more than a minute or two. During this time, those from non-ECPR member institutions will be able to renew their membership without you needing to approve the request.
Those that haven’t renewed their membership before midnight (GMT) on 31 December will automatically be removed from the Standing Group member list. It will still be possible to re-join the group via the information page of the Standing Group,
If you are having any problems renewing or joining the group please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't forget to become a member of the Standing Group!
ECPR have recently made some changes to the ways in which membership of the standing groups operate. This means that we require all existing members to join our group via the ECPR website (instructions below). It is very important that we have a full and up-to-date list of all of our members as this means that you continue to be a member.
In order to join ECPG click on the link below and login to MyECPR, select standing groups, details and then click on join. You can create a MyECPR account even if your institution is not a member of ECPR.
As before there's nothing to pay and it should only take a couple of minutes. It is very important that all members who wish to remain part of ECPG take the time to join via the ECPR website as in a few months our email list will expire and we will move to a new list created by ECPR based on the details of those who have joined via the website.
Please do email email@example.com if you have any problems.
