Title Sexuality, gender and PhDs Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Research Professional News Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 18/09/19 Description The PhD is a time of change. As postgraduate students develop into independent researchers, they are also introduced to the norms and expectations of the workplace and wider academic community.
This is a challenging process for everyone who enters into it. But for researchers who see themselves as outside of the dominant culture the question of how to fit in to those expectations can present particular difficulties. PhD students can often feel isolated, for example, and this isolation can be exacerbated for LGBTQ+ doctoral researchers.
