Contextualising the thesis in Southeast Asia: a pilot research-training module
36 November 2013
Open to PhD students from all faculties and schools at the University of Sydney
Convenor: Professor Philip Hirsch, SSEAC Research Training Advisor
One of the challenges many students face in designing a research topic and writing up their particular case study is how to contextualise their research empirically and theoretically. This pilot activity will run as a three-day intensive retreat at Wangat Lodge, a beautiful – but quite rudimentary – environmental education centre on the northern edge of the upper Hunter Valley from 3-6 November 2013.
The intensive is open to students in any Faculty, School or discipline whose PhD thesis is based on research in or about Southeast Asia. The program will be enhanced by the participation of students at all stages of their research degree. Students at any stage, from those just commencing, to those in the latter stages of writing up, and those at various stages in-between, are encouraged and welcome to apply.
