Essex Workshop on Development (EWOD)
Join us at our interdisciplinary Essex Workshop on Development (EWOD).
Every month, faculty and PhD students across all our departments are joined by
external practitioners to discuss current research on development from both an
academic and a policy perspective.
Our workshops are open to everyone.
Presenting your work
Does your research focus on issues of development? Do you need feedback on your
research project from both the academic and policy side? All faculty members and
PhD students at Essex can present their work at EWOD, as long as it focuses on issues
of development, and they're willing to share a working manuscript with the EWOD group
in advance of the workshop.
If you'd like to present, email us with the title and abstract of your
topic. We'll be in touch with you to discuss further steps.
Aims of EWOD
- Give scholars the opportunity to present their work and receive
constructive feedback from an interdisciplinary audience.
- Generate and strengthen interdepartmental ties.
- Generate and strengthen necessary working links with the development
- Create awareness of common research themes and impact opportunities that
may lead to joint, interdisciplinary research projects in the future.
