Gender Research Network

We bring together researchers across the Curtin campuses working as gender researchers and on gender research related projects as well as those interested in learning about gender research. The GRN will have appropriate representation that includes (as far as is possible): gender diversity; cultural and background diversity; campus, school and discipline mix.

Connecting with the community

The Gender Research Network runs regular events, sharing current gender research being undertaken within Curtin University and externally. We are always looking for gender researchers to collaborate with. If you are interested in running a seminar or event through the GRN, or would like to request a recording of a previous seminar, please contact genderresearchnetwork@curtin.edu.au

You can keep up to date by following us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
