The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) announces the third iteration of its PhD workshop. Aimed at providing a dedicated space for PhD students to engage with IIHS faculty as well as faculty from around the world on a range of issues, from methodology and research design to writing and publication. The IIHS PhD workshop will be held on the 16th and 17th of January 2017. The workshop is designed to provide a platform for early and mid to late stage PhD students to explore in-depth and further fine-tune their work over an intensive two-day period. The workshop will be the third iteration of the PhD workshop conducted at IIHS. To accommodate participants at different stages of their doctoral career, this year’s iteration of the workshop will have a common track as well as two specialized tracks that will focus on specific needs of the participants.

The common track of the workshop will enable PhD students to explore the possibilities of new methodologies and pedagogies in and around the issues of the urban through discussions and panels led by faculty from across the world as well as those at IIHS. In addition, there are two tracks designed keeping in mind the specific trajectories of the PhD students. Track 1 will be focused on early career students who are in the process of finalizing their questions. Track 2 will be focused on late career students working on finalizing their dissertation.

This iteration of the PhD workshop will host participants from across a wide range of disciplines, with a common thread being an engagement with urban questions and concerns. The PhD workshop will spread over two days, with sustained engagement between faculty and participants on issues of contextual research, research ethics, research methods, conducting a literature review, writing a proposal, writing for different registers, and preparing course modules from dissertations.

The PhD workshop, in addition to IIHS faculty, will feature faculty from other institutions as well bringing in a wide range of knowledge expertise.
