Postgraduate seminar series

A cross-institutional (Bath, Exeter, Bristol) seminar series in Politics and International Studies is running in the spring term of 2017! The seminar series is made by and for PhD-students, and offers a supportive and encouraging environment for PhD student in which to present and receive feedback on papers, drafts, chapter proposals etc. The series acts as a forum for discussion of current PGR research being conducted within the departments in the three institutions. A weekly seminar provides a means of maintaining a PGR community, providing a regular point of social contact for peers throughout your time at Exeter. It also functions as a conduit for communication between peers about events, opportunities and developments within the PGR programme.The seminar series runs nearly every Thursday from 17-18. Each seminar has one student presentation, followed by a brief statement from a discussant from senior academic staff, before the floor opens for discussion. Each seminar is followed by lively discussions over drinks and nibbles.

As this years’ seminar series is a cross-institutional one, the location of each seminar alternates between the universities in Bath, Bristol and Exeter. Such a design will widen the PhD networks of all PGRs, and consequently provide opportunities for collaboration and knowledge exchange across the three institutions. To this end, the seminar series has funding in order to cover the travel expenses of Exeter-based students who want to attend a seminar in Bath or Bristol (and vice-versa). The seminar series will have occasional visits from academics, who will provide specific research skills relevant to Politics as a subject.

Please contact: Torill Stavenes (ts433@exeter.ac.uk) or Gertjan Hoetjes (gjh211@exeter.ac.uk) for details.
