Cambridge, with 18 scientists from our network attending. "AcademiaNet has been transformed from virtual life into reality. This should be a starting point for a vivid intellectual exchange between great female scientists in the UK, and I am already looking forward to our next get together," wrote Christina Haubrich, one of the two initiators of the meeting, the other being Lori Passmore. At the Cambridge meeting, political scientist Humeira Iqtidar from King's College London gave a lecture about the ideas presented in her book: 'Secularizing Islamists?' based on her research and interviews in Pakistan.
If you are also interested in setting up an AcademiaNet Club in your area, the organisational procedure is simple: one or two AcademiaNet scientists in a city or region simply plan the first meeting, and the Bosch Stiftung helps by providing a list for distributing the invitations and also has a preprepared leaflet. If at least seven members express an interest, you can invite them to a restaurant. And you don't need to have a guest speaker or a lecture, you can also just meet informally and discuss your work and ideas. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that more and more of our members team up and form their own network of highly successful female researchers.
