The Network of Early Career Researchers in Old Norse inaugural workshop: 21st -22nd October 2017, University of Copenhagen
It is a pleasure to invite you to the first international, cross-disciplinary workshop of The Network of Early Career Researchers in Old Norse (NECRON). NECRON is an international, interdisciplinary network of Early Career Researchers (Post-Docs and PhD Students) working in all fields of broadly-understood Nordic medieval culture and heritage. It offers a forum for junior scholars – academics who have not yet secured permanent employment – to collaborate with and support one another in our dealings with the opportunities and challenges we face in the rapidly-changing modern university.
Our inaugural workshop will address the theme “Trends and Challenges in Early Career Scholarship”. The event will feature keynote lectures, as well as round-table, poster and “slam” sessions, and we hereby invite abstracts for contributions.
All participants are required to submit an abstract for a poster or slam contribution, and are also encouraged to submit an abstract for a round table contribution. It is possible to present a poster OR a slam (but not both), as well as taking taking part in a round table, but a separate abstract for each will have to be submitted. Abstracts should be 50-100 words, sent as a pdf attachment to email@example.com, and clearly state name, affiliation (if any), and form of contribution (poster/slam/round table).
Successful applicants will be notified via email and sent further details for registration. PhD Students will to be able to register the workshop as a PhD Course (1.8 ECTS), certified by the University of Copenhagen.
