ANGEL Early Career Researcher Sub-Network
A new Sub-Network for Early Career Researchers in Global Education & Learning
We are a group of motivated and passionate early career researchers (ECR) who are interested in topics related to Global (citizenship) Education. All ANGEL members who are defined as ECRs can participate in this network to connect with fellow ECR from all over the world and help us expand our international network. Together and with the help of ANGEL, we want to create an early career researcher network that is organised by ECRs and made for ECRs.
ECRs in ANGEL are defined as Master’s students, PhD candidates or equivalent, or post grad up to 6 years after PhD.
It is our goal to create a network that is built on peer support in a relaxed, open and safe atmosphere. The activities of the network have been shaped by a wide survey of ANGEL ECRs conducted in the lead-up to an initial session at the ANGEL Conference 2023 which finalised these plans. We provide a place where ECRs can share both their research and teaching experiences, develop their writing and reviewing skills, network with other ECRs, discuss the latest academic development and learn about opportunities such as conferences or call for papers. Additionally, we also aim to provide more casual encounters, so we can have informal discussions, share tips for well-being, and strengthen our community.
The network will communicate via email newsletter and regular Zoom sessions. We have a Google Classroom platform where you can see our event calendar, share resources and information, as well as reflections. We also plan to have different activities organised by self-appointed facilitators. Everyone can contribute to the network based on their needs, interests and schedule.

The ANGEL network has prioritised providing opportunities for ECRs since its inception. We have run several events purely for, or chiefly targeted, at ECRs, which are listed below. The 2021 online conference and 2023 Paris conference also included dedicated sessions for ECRs.
