Multilingualism and Identities in Algeria – and beyond: PhD Research, Experiences and Strategies – 11/12/2019

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Portsmouth, UK

Dear colleagues,

We are organising a study half-day at the University of Portsmouth and we are pleased to invite PhD students and ECRs to take part in this event on multilingualism and identities. The study half-day will take place in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Portsmouth on Wednesday 11 December, 2019.

This event aims to provide an open and friendly environment for PhDs working on multilingualism and identities in Algeria and elsewhere to share their research in an informal and supportive setting, as well as discuss successful strategies for academic publishing and surviving the PhD journey. The programme is as follows:

13:00-15:00 Knowledge Exchange: participants will be invited to present their research. Two formats are possible depending on research stage: 10-15 min presentations (research focus, methodology, any findings or anything you would like feedback on) or 5 min quick introductions. All participants are invited to share their research focus/questions.

15:00-15:30 coffee break: open and friendly space to develop networks for future collaborations including co-authoring papers, future research projects and sharing advice to facilitate timely (and healthy) research completion.

15:30-16:30 Getting Published: this session focuses on sharing experiences in publishing, and relevant journals and presses. Senior researchers from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences will share their experiences and tips.

16.30-17.30 Surviving the PhD: informal session for PhD students at different stages of their research to ask questions and share strategies. 

We invite PhD students and ECRs interested in participating in this event to register here.
