PROGRAM

1pm – 2:30pm Session 1: Diverse PhD experiences and post-PhD pathways

(In person and online)

In this panel session we will hear from recently completed PhD candidates who will share their diverse PhD journeys and current careers. From those who have completed their PhD by publication and traditional thesis; to those who now work in academia, government and NGO’s; those who are parents or have had children during their candidature; to those who juggled work and completed studies part time. Let’s normalise the many ways we do PhDs and work beyond.

Panellists to be announced soon!

2:30pm – 3:00pm Afternoon tea break

3:00pm – 4:30pm Session 2: COVID, Precarity, and the Field

(In person and online)

This panel session will discuss how COVID-19 is still impacting how research is being undertaken. This panel will involve presentations from currently researching scholars and HDRs to explore how they have responded to the pandemic in their field work and the ongoing precautions they have in place. The aim of this session is to explore how both human and physical geographers are grappling with making their research ‘COVID safe’ and managing the impacts of reduced travel, access, and the risk of further lock downs.

Panellists to be announced soon!

5:00pm Final session: Postgraduate networking drinks

For those in Sydney, join us for networking drinks at the Royal Hotel Darlington (pending COVID-19 restrictions). Refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Geographical Society of NSW.
