Graduate School of Archaeology PhD presentations day

Friday 1 April 2016
Van Steenis
Einsteinweg 2
2333 CC Leiden

The annual GSA PhD presentations day is a get-to-know-each-others-research day, and a  ‘Master class’ for PhD students, aimed to improve presentation skills. Chaired by Dr Miguel John Versluys, a group of PhD students will give a paper on their research topic. Feedback from the (peer) audience will evaluate both the contents and presentation skills after each individual paper. Miguel John will conclude all presentations with a short ‘wrap up’ of the strong aspects of the presentation, and give recommendations for improvement (if any).

On April 1 a group of PhD students who have started in 2013 and 2015 are scheduled.
