Ask Annabel is for everyone, inside and outside academia, who shares her dreams and desires.
Ask Annabel is also a space, actual and virtual where BA and MA students in gender studies can discuss and share their opinions, troubles, excitement, and ideas about studying in
Ask Annabel believes that meeting other colleagues and fellow students, listening to each other's experiences and working together, is the best way to make the experience of studying in the department more collective, richer, and most importantly, more enjoyable!

Ask Annabel has at the moment two points of action:
The 'gAAthering' is an informal meeting in a small and quiet pub in
Approximately once every two months Ask Annabel organises a more academic meeting in the shape of a 'session'. The topics for these sessions are brought up by members individually or by the Ask Annabel team as a whole. Just navigate to the 'Events' section of this website to see what's in store and what's been done.
In the previous years these activities were also in place:
A buddying system has been set up, through which every new student is paired up with a buddy/mentor. In general, mentees and mentor meet on a regular basis (maybe once a month?) to chat about how things are going with research, courses, sports-activities and many other things. Everything the student discusses with their buddy remains confidential. The meetings take the shape of a coffee in a cafe, meeting at the library, together with fellow two or three mentees, or alone with the mentor. The main task of each buddy/mentor is to make the students feel comfortable about studying at the Women's Studies department, by being a point-of-reference who is simultaneously an insider and an outsider (mentors are either former or advanced MA-1 or RMA students or are currently doing their PhD at the Department).
