Young Scholars

IAFFE's Young Scholars is an inclusive, evolving sub-group in IAFFE, represented by the Young Scholars Members Sub-Committee, and is open to anyone who self-identifies as early career in their field or simply newer to feminist economics and wants to connect with others in a similar place. 

We are currently plannning a number of programs to engage with other self-identified young or early career scholars. To sign up for announcements, please complete this form.

Current programs include:

  • Monthly Reading Group: See below for details and upcoming sessions.
  • Mentorship Program: Currently piloting its first year. 
  • Slack Group: Currently in development. Sign-up link will be posted here when open.


The Young Scholars Committee organizes the reading group as an open space where IAFFE members can meet regularly to discuss different topics within the field of feminist economics. It is intended to be a safe space where anyone can learn together and explore new questions.

In 2022, we will meet roughly once a month to discuss different chapters from the ‘The Routledge Handbook of Feminist Economics,’ edited by Günseli Berik and Ebru Kongar. Each session will be hosted by a young scholar to facilitate discussion, so bring your thoughts and questions about the chapters for that session!
