Please join us for the first of two Scholar’s Symposium events next Thursday, May 17th at 330pm in 126 Voorhies.
The first, titled Phases of Thought, is a paper jam style event featuring 8 early-program PhD student paper presentations and 4 later-program PhD student respondents. This event will demonstrate the vast range and keen insight of our department’s newest voices and will begin a dialogue throughout the program about our individual work as well as the direction of the discipline more generally.
Our second event, From Project to Profession, follows on Thursday, May 24th at 4pm in 126 Voorhies and continues the conversation about professionalization and the discipline. This event features three close to completion PhD student speakers on navigating the job market and related professionalization activities. Their talks will cover both their own work and the ways they’ve found for communicating its relevance through job talks, interviews, and conference presentations.
We hope you can join us for both events and can help us to develop a dialogue throughout the department about how we construct our futures together.
Wine and snacks at both events.
