PhD and RMa student Representatives

As members of the PhD Council of RMeS it is our responsibility to advise the RMeS Advisory Board on the development of the education program and to come up with new ideas for workshops, lectures, master classes and other research activities for the PhD and RMa members of RMeS.

Our aim is to stimulate the exchange of ideas between PhD and RMa students of different universities, to develop a relevant education program, and to offer research activities that are of interest to all RMeS’ PhD and RMa members.

In order to cater to your research needs, interests and wishes, we would very much appreciate your input. Please let us know what you would like to see, hear, or learn from the RMeS program. Do you feel that specific themes or topics (for instance, theoretical, methodological, or practical) deserve more attention? Are there particular scholars that you would like to give a workshop, lecture, or master class? Or would you prefer more informal network activities with peers? We welcome any suggestions that you may have.

We also invite you to join the RMeS PhD platform on Facebook. Main objective of this online platform is to facilitate the exchange of PhD related information amongst fellow PhD’s in Media Studies on an informal basis.

We’re looking forward to meeting you at one of the upcoming events. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us at phdcouncil.rmes[at]gmail[dot]com.
