DAY 1

13.15-14.15 GMT - IMISCOE PhD Network Assembly

The assembly is an opportunity for doctoral students to get to know the IMISCOE PhD Network. The PhD representative Isabella Trombetta will present the structure of the Network and give the board members the possibility to share their experiences and plans. Domiziana Turcatti will present the Oxford Migration and Mobility Network, which has contributed to the organisation of the PhD activities for the IMISCOE Spring Conference. We also expect PhD students from various IMISCOE Standing Committees to give a short presentation about their work at IMISCOE. The IMISCOE PhD Network Assembly is organised by Maria Shaidrova (Tilburg University) and Olav Nygård (Linköping University).

 

14.15-15.45 GMT - IMISCOE PhD Network Panel: ‘Communicating Migration Research in Academic and Applied Settings’

This panel brings together senior scholars sharing their experiences with PhD students on how to communicate their work/research with a variety of audiences. There will be four speakers:

  • William Allen (COMPAS, University of Oxford) will discuss the process of submitting to journals and strategies for PhD submissions.
  • Rosaleen Cunningham (COMPAS, University of Oxford) will share her knowledge and experience about communicating with non-academic audiences, focusing on the media and public.
  • Martha Montero Sieburth (University of Amsterdam) will challenge the idea of researchers communicating knowledge to migrant communities by sharing some of the lessons learnt over the years of doing community ethnography with migrants.
  • Marie McAuliffe (IOM) will discuss how to communicate migration research in the context of policy making.

The panel is organised by Domiziana Turcatti (University of Oxford), Gülce Özdemir (Boğaziçi University), and Hakan Kilic (Danube University Krems).

 

19.00-20.00 GMT - IMISCOE PhD Network Academic Speed Dating

One of the key benefits of in-person conferences is to get to know people, discuss research interests, make contacts, find friends and/or co-authors. Virtual conferences may work for keeping in contact but are challenging for making new contacts – an essential for PhD students. This virtual speed dating aims to partly accommodate for that. The overall concept of the activity is based on random breakout-rooms of two, where PhDs will get the chance to know each other by presenting themselves and their research in a relaxed atmosphere. Feel free to bring your drink along! This event is organised by Sandra Morgenstern (University of Mannheim) and Sebastian Carlotti (University of Pisa).

 

DAY 2

10.30-11.00 & 14.45-15.15 GMT - PhD Coffee Room

The PhD ‘coffee room’ is an informal virtual space for doctoral students to meet and get to know one another, run on a ‘drop-in’ basis. It will be moderated by Lucy Hunt (University of Oxford) and Hakan Kilic (Danube University Krems), who will suggest topics for discussion and facilitate access to smaller break-out rooms.

 

12.30-13.30 GMT - IMISCOE PhD Network Workshop: ‘Mixed Methods Research’

The purpose of this interactive workshop is to introduce junior researchers to mixed methods research (MMR). In the first part of the workshop, Dr. Bing Zhu (Assumption University of Thailand) will discuss the major types of MMR, definitions of MMR, purposes, objectives, and rationales for conducting an MMR study, analyzing the data, and writing MMR research questions and reports. Practical strategies using both manual techniques and computer software will be presented and placed in a context of examples from personal experience of the presenter and the literature. The second part of the workshop aims to foster the active participation of the PhDs, ask questions and discuss the possible application of MMR in their research. The workshop is moderated by Mariana Rosca (University of Deusto).
