The IX Doctoral Conference invites doctoral and post-doctoral students in Communication Sciences, Cultural Studies, Sociology and Geography to share experiences, questions, advances related to ongoing research. Thus, the communication proposals, regardless of the PhD’s scientific area, should seek to reflect and raise debate on one of the following themes applied to their project:
The Doctoral Conference aims to reinforce the CECS’ doctoral students’ research work, providing them with forums for dialogue and debate, where they can also collect new contributions to their projects. Furthermore they aim to promote the exchange of experiences and constructive critical assessment. They are open to the participation of all and invite especially the academic community related to the fields of Social Sciences that integrate the CECS. Besides the students, from whom active and constructive participation is expected, CECS researchers whose work focuses on the proposed topics will contribute to the debate and critical scrutiny,along with those responsible for the scientific guidance of doctoral and post-doctoral projects.
The IX Conference will be held over two days with debate panels in the morning and afternoon, a round table and a conference. Each paper will be allocated 15 minutes, with 10 minutes for discussion and comments.
