    We are delighted to share that the first Extreme Context Research Brown Bag Session will be hosted on Thursday, April 15th from 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT / 5:00 PM – 7:00 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. This session is the first of what we hope will be 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 researchers engaged in early-stage projects with the opportunity to receive support, ideas, and feedback from our community (and if this is your first time joining, you are very welcome as well!). For the first session, we have four presenters sharing their early-stage projects with us (please see the attached document for all presenter information, bios, and abstracts).

    We are now inviting you to register as an attendee of the session. Please register at this link to receive the zoom link: https://forms.gle/3TJ2uhz7QbXGht5SA

    Key information about the session:

    • During the Brown Bag session each presenter will be given 25 minutes to share their current projects and to engage in discussion with the audience.
    • Presenters have been invited to share materials they wish attendees to view prior to the session. A link to these materials will be made available in advance of the session to all registered attendees.
    • We will manage the chat and use the “hand wave” signal to facilitate the discussions.
    • Following the session, we will circulate a feedback form to gather your thoughts about the brown bag, and to get a sense of the interest in attending/presenting at other ECR brown bag sessions in the future.
