CSWG "Work (Not?) in Progress" Seminar: Session 2 - Wellbeing, Emotion, and Mental Health
“Work (Not?) In Progress” Sessions
An opportunity to connect and discuss
The COVID-19 crisis has impacted all of us in a number of different ways, from our emotional and mental wellbeing to productivity and how we do research. The Centre for the Study of Women and Gender (CSWG) is launching bi-weekly “Work (Not?) In Progress” sessions to informally connect and discuss issues that are affecting our community in this uncertain time.
You do not need to RSVP. The Zoom link for the session will be sent to the CSWG mailing list on the day, so please keep an eye out for that. We ask that you do not share this link beyond our mailing list due to safety.
We welcome all members of our CSWG community to these sessions. We understand many of you are juggling work with other responsibilities at the moment, so we are happy for you to join the event with children or while doing something else.
Wednesday 17th June: Wellbeing, Emotion, and Mental Health
One of the most pressing issues that many of us will be facing is managing our wellbeing and mental health. Our normal strategies and wellbeing practices may be unavailable, and in these uncertain times stressors may be more impactful. Here we aim to discuss how these experiences are shaping our experiences of teaching, studying, researching and working, and to share strategies for wellbeing.
Session lead: Dr Rumana Hashem, an activist-academic, a sociologist and a feminist researcher, affiliated with the department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick, and the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging at the University of East London.
