Advanced Doctoral Training seminars

A series of informal lunchtime workshops which provide a space for you to reflect on your practice as a researcher in the humanities and to hone the transferable skills that will enable you to develop your career during and beyond the PhD, in both academic and other professional contexts.

A series of informal, online workshops in which we discuss issues of particular relevance to advanced doctoral candidates in HCA disciplines. 

All take place 1-2pm, and PhD students will receive a description of each session and a meeting link by email. All welcome.
