LUCAS PhD Alumni Network Event

Thursday 17 June 2021

On Thursday 17 June 2021 LUCAS (Centre for the Arts in Society) will host a meeting for PhD alumni and Phd candidates. Have you graduated from LUCAS (previously known as Pallas and LUICD) and received your PhD from Leiden University? You are most welcome to join us at this festive event. We hope that you are willing to tell us about your career and experiences since your graduation at Leiden University during the speeddate sessions. Our current PhD candidates are hoping to meet you, their predecessors, and to learn from you about the challenges and opportunities of the job market.

Catching up, speeddating, and online drinks

This will be a great opportunity to catch up with your colleagues, professors and supervisors! We wil start the afternoon with some plenary presentations by PhD graduates in literary studies, art history and media. The program will continue with speeddating sessions for (groups of) alumni and current PhD candidates. We will of course conclude the afternoon with a virtual 'borrel'! The program will take place online, between 15.00 and 17.00 (CET).
