WEGO encounters

WEGO scholars form a tight network of colleagues who meet each other regularly outside of the formal occasions for WEGO meetings. Shared panels in conferences, discussion groups, a writing retreat, and a summer school provided some but not all of the opportunity for engagement across the network. Here some visual material to share with you our joy in the physical and digital meetings we have had over the years.
