Midway Seminar (PhD): Ekaterina Pashevich
PhD Candidate Ekaterina Pashevich presents her work so far and her plans for the implementation of the PhD research project.
Midway Seminar at the IMK is an important milestone where the PhD candidates present what they have achieved so far and describe how they are planning to go further, towards submission.
The event is open to public. PhD candidates who have not yet had their midway seminar, and are not familiar with the format, are encouraged to attend at least one midway seminar before their one.
On this seminar, Ekaterina Pashevich will present her work and plans in connection with her PhD thesis (working title): "Developing social skills with relational technologies: communicative potential of socially interactive toys and the risks of deskilling".
The candidate's work will be commented by opponents:
- head of Phd Research Timotheus Vermeulen
- associate professor Petter Bae Brandtzæg.
