17th-­ 18th July 2017
Sylvia Pankhurst Gender Research Center, Manchester
Metropolitan University

The Gender and Enterprise Network (GEN) invites both new and more established scholars to attend a forthcoming ‘Confreat’ (conference/retreat) on 17th and 18th of July 2017 at the Sylvia Pankhurst Gender Research Center, Manchester Metropolitan University.

The primary focus of this event is to participants to develop working papers for a conference or journal publication. This will mainly take place through feedback on papers and guidance from a prestigious team of established entrepreneurship academics, with both qualitative and quantitative research backgrounds.

During the two-­day event, participants will:

  •  Receive personalised feedback and guidance on their working papers.
  •  Reflect upon the theoretical contributions of their research in the area of gender and
    enterprise.
  •  Learn how to write successful grant applications.
  •  Engage with a unique network of internationally recognised scholars as well as early career researchers in the area of gender and entrepreneurship.

Plans are in the works for an exciting Gender Theory event organised by Prof Julia Rouse and Dr Angela Martinez Dy, featuring a number of well regarded critical realist gender theorists, to be held at Loughborough University London in April 2017. Watch this space!

We at GEN wish you a joyful and relaxing festive season!

All the best for 2017 and beyond.
