Hello TASA Postgrads!
We had a fabulous time at the 2017 TASA Conference in Perth, and I hope you did too! It was wonderful to see so many of you at postgrad day, which featured engaging and informative sessions around many aspects of phd life and beyond (and some craft to top it all off!). Huge thanks to everyone involved, and especially our Postgrad portfolio leader Ashleigh for pulling it all together, hats off to a job well done!
The quality of postgrad presentations was really high and it’s fantastic to get to see the truly great work you’re all doing! Like all good music festivals (TASA is basically falls for sociologists, right?) I missed out on a lot of presentations I wanted to see and I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. SO we would love to use this platform to highlight some of the great work you have been doing and fill that void in my heart left by all those missed presentations. How? By asking you, our postgrad members, to consider writing a short (500-1000 word) blog around your presentation topic to be featured on our TASA Postgrad site. If you think this might be for you then drop me an email for more info!
