Workshop for future doctoral candidates

If you consider applying for a position as doctoral candidate, you have possibilities to participate in a one-day workshop. Choose from six occasions in Swedish and six occasions in English.
A day of thinking and writing organized like an intense workout for the brain. A day where you will have possibilities to ask questions. How do I write my application for a position as doctoral candidate? What does it mean to take a Ph.D.? What is a research question? In what language should I write? Do I have to write at all? How is my daily life as a doctoral student? What is institutional work?
Will I become somebody else? Do I have to buy a doctor's hat? What is a percent seminar? How will I find my voice in an academic setting? What is the new knowledge?
The Department of Film and Media at Stockholm University of the Arts invites you to a day of critical reflection and writing. We write by hand. Phones and computers are unplugged during the day. In a common effort to write and think we will create a temporary research milieu.
The workshop in writing is given in Swedish and English versions. The aim is to facilitate for you that wants to apply for a position as doctoral candidate in Film and Media.
