These workshops are put together by Indiana University East Asian Studies Center and University of Illinois Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies. They feature IL/IN areas of national strength in annual two-day gatherings at which IL/IN faculty offer critical feedback on in-progress dissertations. They are designed to enable dissertation students at all stages of writing to engage in intensive discussions with faculty and other students.
2023 - Professionalization and Research Workshops
We are delighted to invite graduate students at UIUC and IU to a two-part series of professionalization and research workshops designed specifically for graduate students. Our speakers, Dr. Xian Wang from Notre Dame University and Dr. Shota Momma from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will share their insights and advice on navigating the academic world successfully.
The workshops will cover a range of topics including finding research topics, writing dissertations, publishing articles, postdoctoral training, and tips for thriving in the current academic job market. Our esteemed speakers, each specializing in their respective fields of modern Chinese literature and psycholinguistics and sentence processing, will also present their current research during colloquium lectures.
The workshops will provide ample opportunities for attendees to engage with the speakers and fellow students, including individual meetings and collegial social gatherings with faculty members. We welcome students at any stage of their academic journey who are interested in pursuing careers in academia to join us for these valuable workshops.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to gain valuable insights from experts in the field and to connect with your peers and faculty members. We hope to see you there!
