Who We Are & What We Do

AECURN is an informal organisation run by and for Early Career Researchers (PhD candidates & Post-Docs).

With the support of ACRN, our aim is to establish an inter-institutional and inter-disciplinary space for emerging urban researchers. This should be a space to practice the politics of care where we discuss ideas, tell stories, share frustrations, provide support, generate solidarity, create collegiality, and mobilise change.

We hope to achieve these aims by building strong relationships, networks, and coalitions between like minded individuals, grounded by a connectedness in our common experience of navigating the journey of being an emerging academic scholar in the 21st century.
