Dissertation workshop

Prior to the The Annual Conference of the Finnish Literary Research Society, a dissertation workshop for PhD researchers is organized on 11 May 2022. The workshop is directed at PhD researchers in the field of literature. In the workshop, the PhD researchers give a brief presentation of their research and receive feedback on their dissertation text from the attending professors and other participants.

The participants are selected based on their abstracts and letters of introduction. In the abstract (250–300 words), the applicant presents, for example, an idea or a problem that is central to their research. The text that is presented in the workshop can be, for example, a manuscript for an article, a chapter in a dissertation, or a research plan. The maximum length of the text is 10 pages + the disposition of the dissertation. In the letter of introduction, the applicant provides a short description of herself/himself and the stage of her/his research. The participant should also indicate why participating in the workshop would be beneficial for her/him. The applicant’s contact information and the names of the dissertation’s supervisors should be added to the letter of introduction as well. The letter of introduction should be no longer than 1 page. The abstracts and letters of introduction are to be submitted with this form (opens in a new window) no later than 28 February 2022. The deadline for the final papers is 15 April 2022.

It is advisable that the applicants to the dissertation workshop submit a presentation proposal as well, as the number of the workshop’s participants is limited.

The annual conference 2022 will be organized as a hybrid event at Tampere University. Depending on the Covid-19 situation in May, we encourage to consider taking part in the conference in person. It is also possible to join the conference and the dissertation workshop via Zoom. All the arrangements of the seminar will be based on the Covid-19 guidelines of the Tampere University.

The event is organized by the Tampere University and the Finnish Literary Research Society.
