Being There: The Importance of Networking


Sayings like ‘nothing is accidental’ and ‘things happen for a reason’ makes perfect sense in my case. Looking back at my career – which spans various continents, countries, and institutions – I realise that it has been shaped, to a large extent, by chance encounters that have taken place in the context of social gatherings. There is a certain logic to such developments, though, and it is one that may be worthwhile to extrapolate on.

This workshop will discuss the importance of networking in career development. It will be presented in free form, as discussion, and it will aim to give concrete tips that go beyound the advice to attend the field-specific conference in your fields. It is designed for postgraduate students in the humanities at large.
