We’re looking for doctoral- and staff- researchers at Sussex to write for the Doctoral School blog. This blog has a tradition of publishing guest posts from our own researchers since it started, and these ‘experience’ posts get the most interest from our readers. We’d like to feature guest posts more regularly, and so we invite you to contribute…
Of course there’s great value in finding out about the experiences of other researchers, to discover how things are done in other disciplines, and outside of the University. It’s a cliché, but nonetheless true, that it’s comforting to find out that others have similar struggles, and illuminating to uncover alternative approaches and ideas. Add to this the pleasure of vicariously revelling in another’s successes and triumphs, and we have a recipe for feeling connected to our fellow researchers.
We are looking for contributions that:
are between around 400 to 2000 words long (if longer we can publish as a two-parter)
reflect on any topic related to research, or an aspect of the research experience
are written from your own personal perspective, and in your own ‘voice’
cultivate thought, critique, or just plain conversation from other researchers
Include a short (maximum 200 words) bio of you and your research
Feel free to include links to your own blog / webpage / online profile; relevant images (ensure you have the necessary permissions); and your contact information if you would like others to get in touch with you directly.
if you have a WordPress account, let us know the email address connected with your account, and we will add you as a contributor to the Doctoral School blog, ensuring that the byline for your post is yours.
There are loads of potential topics, here’s just a few suggestions to get you thinking:
