Jul 01, 2024

COREnet PhD Summer School 2024 “Intersecting Gender, Religion and Migration in Contemporary Society” was held at the NOVA University in Lisbon, Portugal, on June 25-28, 2024. The aim of a 4-day event, organized in cooperation between the COST Action COREnet, Centre for Research in Anthropology (CRIA) and Vytautas Magnus University, was to provide early career researchers (PhDs, postdocs and researchers up to 40 years old) with the opportunity to discuss and deepen their knowledge and understanding of interdisciplinary research on the intersection of gender, religion, and migration. 

A diverse group of 25 early-career researchers and eight professors from Georgia, Portugal, Italy, Lithuania, Finland, Serbia, Turkey, Norway, Hungary, Poland, Ireland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom attended the School. Participants represented diverse academic disciplines, such as sociology, social anthropology, religious studies, cultural studies, political studies, psychology, etc. The participants’ diverse contexts and disciplinary backgrounds allowed them to delve deeper into the study of the intersection between gender, religion, and migration and reflect on it from different disciplinary perspectives. 

During the School, participants had the opportunity to discuss their research projects with professors and clarify methodological and conceptual challenges in exploring the intersecting relationship between gender, religion, and migration. In addition to the valuable lectures by the professors, the COREnet Summer School participants also went on a field trip to the Sanctuary of Fatimá, one of the most important landmarks in the Marian worship that draws pilgrims from all over the world.
