Doctoral Seminar Program 2015–19

The Doctoral Seminar is a space for early career researchers from across the Institute (with priority given to pre-doctoral fellows) to discuss their work in a formal, yet friendly setting. Sessions are held generally twice a month and are 60 minutes long. They consist of a five-minute introduction by the presenter, followed by Q&A discussion for the remainder of the hour concerning the presenter's pre-circulated paper. We particularly welcome submissions of work in progress, such as dissertation chapters and drafts of papers intended for publication. The doctoral seminars take place 11:00–12:00 in room 215.
