LeidenGlobal Lecture Series 'Beyond Discipline and Place in the Social Sciences and the Humanities'
This course is an interdisciplinary series of lectures and seminar discussions open in the fall of each year to PhD candidates and Research MA students at Dutch Universities and LeidenGlobal partner institutions.
It offers advanced research students an opportunity to examine how scholars in the academic fields of the Social Sciences and the Humanities (including Archaeology and Law) locate their work in relation to disciplinary conventions, reflect on their socio-political position as researchers in relation to their research, and explore choices of discipline and place along their career path.
Through the semester advanced research students will learn of different approaches to discipline and place, consider the potential value of each as well as the challenges and barriers to implementation. Together participants will work to locate their emerging research projects, with attention to researchers’ positionality and ethical practice.
The series aims to stimulate conversations and collaborations across disciplinary and societal divides, in line with developments in scholarship worldwide. Ideally, students will participate in this course early on in their scholarly training, but applications by students at all stages of their research careers are welcome.
Registration is closed.
