ASEN Early Career and PhD Project Workshop


Date(s) - 28/08/2020
13:00 - 15:30

In responding to the research difficulties arising from COVID-1 (including of presenting and developing research at conferences, and conducting fieldwork or archival research), the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism is holding a project workshop for PhD students and early career researchers (up to 3 years post-PhD/pre permanent job). This workshop is open across disciplines to those working within the field of nationalism and ethnicity studies. The workshop will provide a setting to present and discuss these works in development.

We plan to gather 10 participants, alongside the moderator (Dr Eleanor Knott), for a workshop on Zoom. Participants should come prepared to present their research in small groups (10 minutes) and to the whole (group 5-10 minutes). The workshop will take place on the 28th of August 2020 at 2-4:30 pm (UTC+1). 

To apply for the workshop, please submit a 150 word abstract on the project you would like to discuss, your name, affiliation/position, email and a few sentences on your progress through the project and problems experienced that you would like to be discussed. Please submit to and before the deadline on the 31st of July. 

Submission of abstracts does not guarantee a spot in the workshop. If there are more applications than places, we will let you know if you are successful or if you are on the reserve list.
