      Are you an early-stage researcher with an extreme context research project that you would like to receive feedback on?

      • Do you (or will you) have access to an extreme context and want to talk about potential paper ideas?
      • Are you looking to discuss your initial data analysis, working model, or data collection plan?
      • Are you seeking feedback on your framing or help with identifying relevant literature for your project?

      Or, are you a researcher at any career stage interested in research conducted in extreme contexts? 

      • Are you open to providing feedback on early-stage research projects?
      • Are you interested in networking with researchers in the extreme context space?
      • Would you like to find potential collaborators?

      If so, we invite your application to present your project and/or attend as an audience member at the second Extreme Context Research Brown Bag Session on September 30th at 6:30 AM PT / 9:30 AM ET / 3:30 PM CEST via zoom.

      The Extreme Context Research community ( is large, active and highly experienced community of international researchers from a broad range of theoretical and methodological backgrounds. As a community, we look forward to providing a supportive and collaborative learning environment that supports early-stage researchers with their research projects.

      This session is the second of several brown bag sessions offered by the Extreme Context Research community, providing new opportunities to meet, grow and learn together. The goal of this session is to provide early-stage researchers (PhD students and Postdocs) with the opportunity to receive support, ideas, and feedback. To enhance the learning experience for all of our attendees, we will ask those who apply to present to nominate 1-3 faculty that they would like us to invite to serve as a discussant for their project. Faculty from the ECR community will also be present during the session to help facilitate the conversation.

      • If your project is selected for this session, you will be invited to give a short 5 minute presentation on your project during the session.
      • Each presenter will then have 20 minutes to receive feedback from discussants and the rest of the group.
      • Following the session, attendees will also be asked to complete feedback forms for you with additional ideas, thoughts and resources to support presented projects.
