Service Description

Join us online in July 2024 for the first ever Psygentra Conference! We will be adopting unconference principles, such as flexibility and informality, open discussions, and a non-hierarchical approach to presentations (e.g. no keynotes). Like all Psygentra events, we are foregrounding a small-group structure in a micro-conference format. So, if you are looking for a non-intimidating, supportive, and encouraging space to share your work, network, and make friends, where you can also get quality feedback on theory, method, and practice - this is the micro unconference for you. We will also be combining three aspects that are central to Psygentra's work - criticality, creativity, and community. We are accepting papers, posters, poetry, commentaries, and more on critical analyses, creative methodologies and creative writing, and community perspectives like activist interventions and campaigns, to community-building. FOR PRESENTERS For submissions we require some information about (1) WHAT you would like to contribute to the event (e.g. a summary of your project, this can be a formal abstract if that is more comfortable for you, but it can also be a summary description), (2) HOW you would like to contribute (e.g. a formal presentation, an open discussion or panel, a poster, a creative reading, or something else entirely, and whether you want to present live or not), and (3) for HOW LONG (e.g. a 10 minute presentation, a 45 minute panel, a 20 minute reading etc.). We can't guarantee that we will be able to meet your requirements, but we will try as best we can to accommodate your chosen presenting style. Please note that there are limited presenting spots. All submissions will be reviewed by the Conference Organising Team. There will be three certificates awarded for each category (critical, creative, and community) and abstracts/full submissions will be invited for publication in the Journal of Psychology, Gender, and Trauma. FOR ATTENDEES Each presentation will have ample time for small group discussion, so you will have the opportunity to participate if you want to. You can also observe the discussion and learn from the group as a whole. Information will be available in a range of formats (presentations, captions, transcripts, posters etc.). Please contact the conference organisers if you have specific accessibility needs. To create a safe(r) space for critical discussion and disclosure, the conference will not be recorded.
