We are happy to announce first Early Career Workshop organized by the Turkish Politics Specialist Group of the Political Studies Association (PSA). This workshop aims to bring together postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career academics who study various aspects of Turkish politics.
The workshop offers PhD students and early career scholars an opportunity to exchange ideas, receive feedback on their methodological approach, and develop their knowledge of different methodological approaches to studying Turkish politics.
The workshop will be held as a virtual event on Wednesday, November 30th, between 13:00-17:00 (Turkish time).
The workshop will have two sections. In the first half, Dr. Osman Zeki Gokce (Medipol University) will discuss some of the fundamentals of research design in politics. In the second half, PhD students and early career scholars will present their own research, with a particular focus on their methodologies. Each presenter will receive feedback from Dr Gokce and two discussants, as well as opening up for a wider Q&A from the virtual audience. We ask that all participants read all papers before the event and are prepared to give constructive feedback in a supportive atmosphere on each other’s work.
There will be up to six presentations, and these can range from full papers and research designs to pre-analysis papers. Each paper presentation and collective discussion will last 45 minutes.
Applicants should submit their full papers, research designs, or pre-analysis plans by filling out this form by November 8, 2022.
We will notify successful applicants by November 14.
Participants will be required to submit their final submission by November 23. The detailed agenda of the workshop will be released after the applicants are informed of the outcome.
We very much look forward to receiving your applications!
