The Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of East Anglia, in collaboration with the School of Environmental Science and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, are pleased to offer a coordinated suite of doctoral training workshops supported by the ERSC Advanced Training Initiative 2014, entitled 'Social Studies of Environment & Sustainability'. PGR students and early-career researchers from across the social sciences, with research interests in the environmental-social interface, are invited to attend one, several or all four of the training workshops (described below) which are to be offered over a single working week in June 2016 (20th-24th inclusive).
Specifically, the four individual workshops are as follows (please see the individual advertisements on this site or follow our website link for further details):
Ideational Theories and Discursive Methodologies in Analysis: The Case of Environmental & Sustainability Policy; Mon/Tues 20th & 21st June 2016 (delivered by Professor Alan Finlayson, Dr John Turnpenny, Dr Chris Hanretty, Professor Andreas Musolff & Dr Gabrina Pounds).
The Interdisciplinary PhD: Researching Society, Science, Environment; Weds 22nd June 2016 (delivered by Dr Irene Lorenzoni, Dr Peter Simmons, & Dr Tom Hargreaves)
Research Methods in Global Environmental Justice; Thurs 23rd June 2016 (delivered by a teaching team drawn from Dr Vasudha Chhotray, Professor Thomas Sikor, Dr Adrian Martin, Dr Mark Zeitoun, Dr Shawn McGuire & Dr Roger Few).
Participatory Research Approaches in Global Contexts; Fri 24th June 2016 (delivered by Dr Esther Priyadharshini & Professor Anna Robinson-Pant).
All four workshops have been designed to benefit PGR students at various stages of their doctoral programme and each will follow a similar delivery format. In the first instance, this will involve a one or two day workshop combining lectures, discussions, and data-driven sessions, focussing on PGR student data, but it will also continue afterwards, via provision of an online forum (and repository of relevant resources and links) for participants. A one-to-one follow-up tutorial will also be offered to PGR student attendees in order to allow them to benefit from expert advice about their own research at a time when that advice is most needed. This format and suite of courses, we believe, will afford PGR students a genuinely multi and interdisciplinary opportunity to network with world leading researchers and other PGR students addressing similar research issues and challenges.
PLEASE NOTE: A maximum of 20 places will be available on each workshop, so early booking may be advisable.
Intermediate (some prior knowledge)
