Deadline for registration is 10th June 2022.
For Ph.D.-students attending the 30th Nordic Sociological Association Conference, we arrange a one-day pre-conference as a PhD course, with the support of The Nordic Sociological Association. The pre-conference features Professors Þorgerður Einarsdóttir and Sigrún Ólafsdóttir from the University of Iceland who will reflect on the challenges of writing and publishing peer
Presentations from PhD students are organized in parallel sessions with room for engaging discussions. Upon registration, Ph.D.-students will be asked to submit a short abstract. The pre-conference is open for all Ph.D.-students, and we especially invite participants from the Nordic universities.
