The 2017 TASA Postgraduate Day will be an interactive one-day workshop connecting postgrads and tackling issues central to the PhD process. Practical sessions will cover a range of topics from conferencing to writing and teaching skills. Informative sessions will illuminate sociological work beyond the PhD from Early Career to Professorial stages as well as beyond the academy. As a participant you will engage in activities to help you meet new people, refine your presentation skills, and develop how you speak about your research. You will also have the opportunity to be mentored by senior academics in small groups, aligned to your needs or interest areas. Uniquely this year, afternoon sessions will run in two parallel streams tailored to early versus late stage PhDs. We hope this day will be valuable to all current postgraduates and specifically cover issues relevant to sociology.
More details will be available soon.
