Day of Doctoral Research at the Faculty for Social Sciences, University of Vienna

I am invited to present my dissertation at the Day of Doctoral Research, 4th of October, of the Faculty for Social Sciences at the University of Vienna. PhD Students from all of the Faculty’s departments – anthropology, political sciences, sociology, nursing science, science studies and communication sciences – are going to exhibit a poster of their dissertation research and discuss their work in the auditorium of the AKH-campus.

In addition to the presentations (2.30-3.30 and 6.00-7.00pm), the day includes a workshop discussion on academic careers in the social sciences (3.30-4.30pm) and on science communication (5.00-6.00pm). The latter is chaired by Armin Wolf. The day finishes with a science slam at 7pm and a reception afterwards.

Looking forward seeing you there!
