Call for Participants: EAIS Annual Graduate Workshop
'Analysing the challenges of Israel Studies Research'
Sunday, 17 March 2019, 10:00-17:00
School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS), University of London
Room 202, Brunei Gallery
The European Association of Israel Studies (EAIS) is pleased to announce its third annual Graduate Workshop in Israel Studies, to be held at the School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS) in London. The workshop seeks graduate students from all academic disciplines whose doctoral dissertations engage with the study of Israel.
The workshop looks to provide a forum where students can raise and discuss any methodological, theoretical, practical and ethical issues arising from their study of Israel. Presenters are encouraged to explain the nature of their research, any relevant hypotheses or research questions, and any proposed methodological and/or theoretical frameworks used. However, the organizers emphasise that they are not looking for standard conference papers. The purpose of the workshop is to allow students to discuss challenges and difficulties they are currently grappling with, and it offers a chance to receive advice and guidance from peers and a set of established academics.
Presenters will have a maximum of 20 minutes each, which will be followed by discussion and feedback. There will also be ample opportunities for networking during lunch and coffee breaks.The workshop will also contain a session on how to prepare for an academic career after the PhD, which will discuss issues such as: putting together a competitive job or postdoctoral application; strategising your publications effectively (where to publish and when); identifying a disciplinary home; and others.
