Pride in Research 2022
Are you a member of the LGBTQ+ community? Are you a researcher? Then Pride in Research 2022 wants to hear from you! Pride in Research TCD is an event set up by fellow LGBTQ+ researchers in Trinity with the goal of increasing the visibility of LGBTQ+ people in academia. As well as this, there is a need to build a stronger community of queer people within our university's research environment. This is the second year the event has run, but it will be the first time it is hosted in-person and will take place in M4, Museum Building on June 16th, right in the middle of pride month!
The event will take the form of an academic conference, with researchers of all levels, from all disciplines invited to present their work. In addition, presenters are also encouraged to share a little about their experience as members of the LGBTQ+ community in academia. There will be plenary talks and discussions too from some very interesting speakers! Thanks to financial support from the TCD Equality fund, this event is free of charge. Tea, coffee and lunch will be provided for attendees over the course of the day.
Abstract submissions are open to all LGBTQ+ staff and students and the submission deadline is May 20th. Registration is open to all fellow LGBTQ+ staff, students and allies. Join the Pride in Research symposium this year for a chance to celebrate this pride month by showcasing the great diversity of research carried out at Trinity College Dublin by LGBTQ+ people!
