PhD Network

Successful first edition PhD Workshop at the Imiscoe annual conference 2015

 

After an inspiring key note speech by Zana Vathi (Edge Hill University) reflecting on PhD and academic life, the participants split up in small groups to follow masterclass sessions and participate in the paper sessions on e.g. Migrant Political Participation and Mixed Methodologies hosted by Maarten Vink and Costica Dumbrava (Maastricht University), Janine Dahinden (Université de Neuchâtel), Russell King (University of Sussex) and Blanca Garcés Mascareñas (Universitat Pompeu Fabra).  The day was concluded with a plenary session on the future plans for the IMISCOE PhD network and next year’s conference and PhD Workshop in Prague. The program was well received and offered a good opportunity to actively engage with peers and experts in the network.
