CRISP doctoral school

The Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP) will have its second doctoral school on June 16-24 in Milton Keynes, UK. Francisca, Matthias and I had the pleasure to go last year. It was fantastic, because beyond discussing our doctoral research, it also inlcuded sessions on publishing, funding, and engagement with the media, as well as a bunch of lovely people. The deadline for applications is March 14. Here's a list of activities this year's doctoral school will include, and you can find out more on their website:
Scheduled sessions include:

  • state-of-the-art lectures by leading surveillance scholars; working within and between disciplines;
  • publishing in top ranked journals;
  • techniques for securing research funding;
  • working with the media;
  • academics and activism;
  • a field trip to the Bletchley Park code breaking centre
