This Masterclass offers a handful of Ph.d. students the chance to present aspects of their in-process research projects to Professors Susanna Paasonen and Jenny Sundén, and thus get in-depth feedback. It is an opportunity to develop your project with input from two prominent, Nordic scholars. Any subject is allowed, however subjects relating to gender and queer studies, affect, science and technology studies, and ethnographic methodology are prioritised. Powerpoint or verbal presentation required.

Abstract guidelines

We simply ask that you in the submitted abstract include pointers to subjects that you are particularly interested in, or battling with, along with a general project description. It is possible to submit text up to 8 pages. Presentation
