New PhD Representative of the IMISCOE PhD Network: Giulia Mezzetti

12 October 2018

The PhD network keeps expanding every year, attracting the interest of numerous early career researchers involved in migration and integration-related studies. At the 2018 Annual Conference in Barcelona, the PhD Network organized three workshops specifically addressing PhDs: two were devoted to career development – publishing and research funding opportunities – and one concentrated on the use of categories in migration research. Furthermore, the network organized an “Intergenerational Feedback” session, where PhDs could receive advice on their research from senior academics through small group discussions. 

We received a very positive feedback concerning these three initiatives, as well as numerous adhesions from PhDs interested in becoming part of the PhD network Soundboard, which organizes all the Network activities. Besides workshops at the IMISCOE Annual Conference, we aim at expanding networking opportunities by putting in touch PhDs and senior scholars in the same research field, we run a blog on migration research, and have activated a “teaching reflections” group for researchers involved in teaching activities. 

As of October 2018, Giulia Mezzetti  was appointed as new representative of the network. For 2018-2019 she aims to improve the visibility of the PhD Network and strengthen its ongoing activities. The PhD Network thanks Cathrine Talleraas for her immense work coordinating the network in 2017-2018.

We encourage members and others who are interested to check out our website, our blog, our facebook page, and our new twitter account @IMISCOE_PhD.
