European Community Psychology Association (ECPA) in collaboration with the Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA) is organising an online webinar series, composed of five online webinar sessions. Each webinar will focus on key societal challenges and domains for community psychologists, such as borders and migrant justice; feminisms and gender-based violence; violence and resistance in transgender, queer and gender-nonconforming communities; climate/environmental justice; community mental health and homelessness; the prison-industrial complex and abolitionist struggles; decolonising academic knowledge and practices. For each webinar, scholars from ECPA and SCRA respectively will be invited to share their insights with the audience.
The series will take place between November 2023 and June 2024. We are looking for one to two European-based students enrolled in a Master or PhD programme with a focus on community psychology to help organise and disseminate the online webinar series.
Tasks: Collaborators will help designing the webinar series and identify the ECPA/SCRA scholars to invite for each session. Collaborators will also help disseminate the webinar series and run individual sessions. After each webinar, the two collaborators will finally write a short blogpost with key ideas and discussions coming out of each webinar, or will help ECPA board members finding someone who would be willing to write it.
Each of the collaborators will be provided a grant of 450 Euros .
Application process: To apply for this opportunity please send a brief description, of no more than two pages, of the webinar series how you will design it. Please indicate title and main topics addressed in each webinar and the reason why these are important for community psychology scholars, activists, and practitioners.
Please also provide a brief motivation letter, describing why you are applying for this opportunity and how this role aligns with and contribute to your academic/professional values and trajectory, and what you are looking to learn from it.
Applications from Black and ethnic minoritised students are particularly welcome.
