This year's workshop of the Women's and Gender Studies Network NRW will focus on science communication, on 7 June 2024 at the Erich Brost House

Between dialogue and speech bans - challenges of science communication on gender perspectives, gender and queer studies

The Mid-level Faculty Workshop 2024 addresses the topic of science communication in gender studies and aims to identify and discuss opportunities and challenges of transfer of knowledge to society together with the participants. Participants can learn from experts and exchange ideas in parallel workhops. Topics include, for example

- reflecting on their own science communication and possible challenges

- learning strategies and tools for communicating research results to society;

- advantages and disadvantages of different media formats;

- requirements placed on scientists by journalists (e.g. when requesting interviews) and how to deal with them.

The aim of the workshop is to provide participants with skills for successful science communication and at the same time to sensitize and empower them for the special challenges of media communication in the field of gender & queer studies and subject-specific gender research.
