PhD Master Class with Martin Puchner (Harvard University)
How does your research matter? What's at stake in your project? Panel discussion with Professor Martin Puchner (Harvard) and special guests Kristina Leganger Iversen (UiO-ILN), Espen Grønlie (UiO-ILOS) and Wassim Rustom (University of Bergen).
For PhD fellows and supervisors in all subject areas at ILOS and affiliated departments. Q&A, drinks and mingling to follow.
Organizer: Tina Skouen
This winter event addresses some of the most crucial and challenging questions in academic writing. Who are you addressing and what may be the consequences of your argument? Why does it matter, and to whom?
While primarily aimed at PhD fellows and their supervisors, the discussion will be open to others interested (eg. postdocs, faculty members and MA students writing theses).
