Led by editors of two leading gender studies journals – Women’s History Review and Journal of Gender Studies – and supported by senior academics from the University of Ghana, this workshop is aimed at female humanities and social science early career researchers and final-year PhD students from English-speaking West Africa (Ghana, Gambia, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone), who are working on gender inequality.
This workshop will offer hands-on training in getting published and applying for grants and include mentoring and networking opportunities. As getting published and winning grants are increasingly becoming criteria for recruitment and promotion in Higher Education in West Africa, it will provide participants with key tools to empower themselves on the academic labour market. In addition, it will ensure better representation of regional gender equality issues in high impact journals and cultivate further research and dissemination of ideas in this field.
Workshop Team: Professor Henrice Altink, University of York; Dr Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, University of Ghana
