Post-field II: Conversation aims to provide a venue for doctoral students coming back from their fieldwork to transition into writing, through a guided conversation on research experiences and dilemmas. It is being offered in light of suggestions from previous cohorts on the necessity of a mechanism in which doctoral students are able to share and thresh out the various issues they faced while doing their research, in an atmosphere that is relaxed and supportive.
During the session, each participant will be given time to share their experiences and the dilemmas they encountered during their research and after returning from the field. The discussion will then proceed by tackling the issues that were raised in the sharing. Everybody is encouraged to give their views, advise, and opinion regarding the experiences of their colleagues.
There will not be any formal lectures nor required readings. We aim to maximize the time for the sharing of experiences, dilemmas, and issues, and giving advice. And while the conversation style will be the main format, it will be guided by questions which will also serve as the guide for the participant's sharing and short paper (see the download section below).
