PhD and Post-Doctoral Researcher Workshop Series

Summer 2021

The UCD Centre for Constitutional Studies is delighted to announce that we will be kicking off a series of workshops for PhD and postdoctoral researchers at the School of Law.

These workshops are designed to support researchers by giving you a platform to connect with one another, present your research in a safe space and gain valuable feedback from your colleagues. They are a great opportunity to get used to articulating a research question or approach, or to practice delivering a brief presentation on the status of your project. It can also be a forum to outline any difficulties encountered in your project – theoretical or practical - and to get insights from others on how to move forward.

Each session will include presentations from two speakers – PhD candidates or postdoctoral researchers – whose research touches on any aspect of constitutional law, constitutional politics or constitutional theory. Each presentation will be approximately 15 minutes long (slides are optional) and will be followed by 10 minutes of feedback from the group.

The first workshop will take place over Zoom in the coming weeks. It will be introduced by Professor Eoin Carolan, the Director of the Centre, and will be scheduled shortly.

Speakers will also have the option of contributing a short blog piece on their presentation topic after the workshop which will be added to the Centre’s website.

If you would like to present at a workshop, please contact the Centre’s Chief Outreach Officer, Seána Glennon, at (opens in a new window)seana.glennon@ucdconnect.ie with a short paragraph on your proposed topic.

Please include the subject line ‘Centre for Constitutional Studies PhD and Post-Doctoral Researcher Workshop’.
