PhD Colloquium 2013-14
The PhD Colloquium provides PhD students the opportunity to present their own
research within a friendly environment of fellow students and academics. All PhD
students are welcome to give a presentation whenever they want to get feedback
and share the different stages of their research. We also call on all our PhD
colleagues to actively participate in the colloquium and share their thoughts as
well as to support with others in the colloquium. Presentations are typically
either a solo presentation or a panel discussion on a specific topic.
Even if you are not a PhD student yourself you are free to attend and see the
current ongoing research of PhD students within the department.
To ensure that all the sessions proceed smoothly, there are some basic
requirements that presenters must observe:
- The presenter has to be accompanied by a discussant during
- The presenter should hand in the title and abstract of the
paper as well as the name of the discussant at least one week
before her/his session.
- The presenter must also allow her/his discussant to have at
least one week to go through the paper.
Last but not least, we ask the presenter to submit a short version of her/his
CV in order to inform the audience of her/his academic background as well as
her/his current research interests.
Although it is organised by and for PhD students in the Department of
Government, the PhD colloquium is not entirely exclusive. PhD students from
other departments in the University of Essex or from other universities whose
research works fall within the field of political science, political theory, and
discourse analysis are also welcome.
When and Where
The PhD Colloquium is held at 17:00 every Wednesday in room 4.309. Each
session lasts one hour (20 minutes for the presenter, 10 minutes for the invited
discussant, and 30 minutes for open discussion).
The co-ordinators of the colloquium are PhD students from the Department. For
2013/14, this task is held by Alexei Anisin (aanisi) and Peter Josse (pjjoss).
