November 2022: Emerging Trans Researchers Conference
The Emerging Trans Researchers Conference was held online on Friday 18th November 2022, via Zoom. This was the first research conference of its kind in Australia, with all organisers and presenters part of the trans and gender-diverse community.
The conference aimed to:
Contribute to the capacity-building of trans researchers in trans research
Provide a supportive conference space for trans students and early- career researchers to share their research and develop their presentation skills
Foster meaningful connections between trans researchers from across Australia
The Conference was NOT recorded. Recording the Conference would have presented a barrier to the involvement of some presenters and attendees, particularly those who are not publicly out as trans or gender-diverse. By limiting viewing only to those who attended on the day, we were able to provide a little more privacy and safety. Some presenters have shared their presentation materials.
