IMK PhD "Kappe" and thesis seminar
On the first day, there will be a traditional thesis seminar. On the second day, we will look into pitfalls connected with writing the explanatory part of an article-based thesis ("kappe"). NB! New dates!
Presentations and discussion on the seminars will be tailor made for the PhD candidates within media studies.
The first day will be a traditional thesis seminar where IMK candidates will present and get feedback on their work in progress.
The second day will be devoted to article-based dissertations, where also experiences from evaluations committees will be presented. A former PhD-student that successfully have submitted her/his kappe will present experiences, and a supervisor (Marika Lüders) will present her experiences.
We will also discuss and respond to challenges and questions from the PhD-candidates and supervisors based on the experiences presented.
Everybody is requested to prepare a 15 min. (approx.) presentation of their own papers/chapters with the following content:
- Aim/research question
- Research gaps
- Theoretical approach
- Methods (if applicable)
- Findings (if applicable)
- What do I need feedback on? (optional)
More information on the structure / opponents is coming.
