When we first established the DDGC mutual aid group, we committed to publishing an anonymized aid log that details the ways we have been able to build a collective and support one another in various ways. We share this information both to encourage transparency in how we function as a mutual aid community and to highlight the many areas affected by, for example, contingency or lack of mentorship and support in German Studies.
Today, we are publishing the first iteration of the mutual aid log to share data from our first year as a mutual aid group.
Resource requests have included manuscript editing, helping to connect Directors of Graduate Studies, project brainstorming, networking, and connecting individuals with housing resources.
