Gender and Sexuality Research in Education SIG

The Gender and Sexuality Research in Education SIG aims to provide a forum for researchers and educators to showcase and celebrate the important, interdisciplinary and innovative work in this quickly expanding international field. A forum to discuss theory, policy and practice related issues. It aims to proactively support G&S educators, researchers and key stakeholders to collectively think about the value of the work done in this area and the exciting impacts it can have on schools, educational communities and societies. It is envisioned that this proposed SIG will brings together national and international researchers and educators from diverse research perspectives and interdisciplinary areas at early and advanced career points.
