Project Update 14/3/24

The States of Precarity survey closed in December and we were blown away by the response. Over 350 people from a range of career stages and perspectives participated. The responses were incredibly generous and we would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who took the time to share their (sometimes difficult and painful) experiences, thoughts, reflections, and suggestions on how to create a more equitable and just discipline. 

Moving forward, we are working on analysing the data and developing a strategy to share it as effectively as possible. We met as a team with the RGS in Birmingham to discuss next steps and have since applied for two small grants that we hope will propel the project forward. 

In the longer term, we will be organising focus groups to help shape the outputs of the project and we are grateful to all those who expressed a willingness to participate in these via the survey. In the shorter term, we will be sharing our initial findings at this year's RGS conference (more on this soon). We are delighted that Sage Brice, Aditi Das, Olivia Mason, and Cheryl Mcewan will be acting as discussants for this. We will also be opening the discussion out to the audience so we hope to see as many people there as possible. 

We will keep the website updated as the project unfolds and again, our sincere thanks to everyone who has participated and shaped it so far.
