JULY 2012 - ISTR PhD SEMINAR
7/8/2012 to 7/10/2012
The ISTR PhD Seminar will be a recurring event that takes place bi-annually in conjunction with the international conference. The ISTR PhD Seminar is open to all doctoral students in the field of third sector and civil society research, across the different regions in the world, and at all stages of their doctoral research. The aim of the workshop is to provide doctoral students with the opportunity to receive extensive intellectual and methodological advice on their doctoral research, to introduce them to main theories and developments in the field, to reflect upon publication and career strategies, and to provide a unique opportunity to network with junior and senior scholars with the international ISTR research community.
More specifically, the seminar will consist of both plenary sessions with presentations by leading scholars in the field, and parallel group sessions in which the participants have the opportunity to present and discuss their doctoral research with peers, junior and senior faculty. Participants will be grouped thematically, but the group composition will be heterogeneous in terms of concrete research topics, disciplinary background, research stage, method, and regional affiliation.
The seminar is limited to a group of (up to) 50 doctoral students. Applicants must be members of ISTR and register to attend the conference. The ISTR PhD Seminar will start with an informal dinner on Sunday evening, July 8, 2012. Plenary and group sessions will take place on Monday, July 9 and Tuesday, July 10 in the morning. Participants are expected to arrive on Sunday. ISTR will cover two nights of accommodation (Sunday July 8 and Monday July 9) as well as coffee breaks and meals during the Seminar. Travel costs will not be refunded. ISTR will offer conference registration subsidies. Applicants for discounted registration conference fees should go directly to ISTR. Applications for subsidies will be available in January 2012.
