‘Messy Life, Messy PhD, Messy Me’: A practical session to help manage the mess.

Thursday, November 25th 12.30pm-1.30pm AEDT


What does the life of a ‘real’ PhD student look like? Many PhD students and early career researchers today have to navigate a series of expectations, power relations, and challenges from day to day that can often feel overwhelming and all-consuming. Often many students feel pulled in a variety of different directions to upskill, publish, take on new experiences, and finish their PhD in a timely manner - all while also juggling personal responsibilities, home-life and other external factors. The experience of being a PhD student can be messy, complicated and diverse. We want to talk about all that messiness with you in order to bring forward different perspectives and reclaim a more balanced approach to what being a PhD student is all about. So, come with your perspectives, questions, and insights and let’s have this conversation together.
