London, Jun. 18, 2012
Following the success of the First Joint PhD Symposium on South East Europe, held at LSE in June 2010, the Centre for the Study of the Balkan at Goldsmiths, University of London, will host the Second Joint PhD Symposium in June 2012.
The aim of the symposium is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between scholars currently undertaking doctoral research on the region. The event will try to help research students to overcome the academic isolation associated with PhD research, to ‘try’ their ideas and findings on wider audiences, and to establish new collaborative links across disciplines. Researchers will also be able to ‘engage’ with a wider academic community, including academic members of staff at the three institutions, and also a number of other distinguished scholars who will be involved with the symposium.
The Second Joint PhD Symposium on South East Europe will address several issues related to the abovementioned region with a multi-disciplinary approach touching upon political studies, sociology, anthropology, economy, history, law and cultural studies.
How to participate to the Symposium
Participants will be expected to pay for their own travel, accommodation and subsistence. There will also be a registration fee of £15 for all participants, payable upon registration. General participants are welcome to attend.
