Doctoral Consortium

This year’s CEEGS will offer a doctoral consortium (28  September 2019 from 11:30). Participation is limited to a number of selected candidates.

Selection of candidates is carried out on basis of:

  • extended abstracts (max. 1000 words including references);
  • abstract and timeline of whole PhD project (max. 1 page); 
  • short CV (max. 1 page);
  • cover letter specifying expectations to the event (max. 0,5 pages);

Form the submissions, the committee will select a limited number of candidates who will be invited to submit full papers. Relevant criteria for selection are not only the overall scientific quality of the work. Additional relevant factors can be the current stage of the doctoral project (e.g. early-stage applicants need less developed proposals), the chosen thematic, theoretical and methodological frames (how do they fit with the emerging workshop as a whole?), and how each paper may speak to other submitted contributions. We will attempt to achieve a balanced composition of the workshop with respect to gender and other identity-based criteria.

The process will not be anonymized.

Each paper included into the workshop will receive approx. 60 minutes for feedback and discussion.

  • 15 minutes presentation;
  • 5 minutes structured commentary by assigned peer;
  • 5 minutes structured commentary by one organizer;
  • 35 minutes free discussion/feedback;

All submitted papers will be distributed to all registered participants before the doctoral consortium takes place. We expect all participants to have read all papers and to actively take part in discussions and debates. The workshop will be open to interested conference participants.

Deadline for submission of abstracts and additional required documents: 1st July 2019.

Deadline for the submission of full papers (max. 5000 words excl. references): 2nd September 2019.

The doctoral consortium is organized by Hans-Joachim Backe (ITU), Holger Pötzsch (UiT) and Hanna Wirman (ITU).
