The PhD and the Powerful: a BISA postgraduate network workshop

Disparities of power often exist between postgraduate students and the actors they focus on. This holds especially true for international studies, where access to information and subjects is often constrained by state actors able to envelop themselves in numerous, potentially legitimate, restrictions. The purpose of The PhD and the Powerful workshop is to help PhD students and ECRs in the realm of international studies to identify, comprehend and develop strategies for dealing with such disparities. Drawing from experienced academics and postgraduate students themselves, the objective of the workshop will be to develop an increased awareness of both the problems and opportunities that arise from unequal power relations. In doing, it aims to help postgraduate students appreciate how best to locate, understand, navigate and interpret power.

The keynote will be given by by Ruth Blakeley, University of Sheffield and The Rendition Project.
