Dear Colleagues:

Deadline Reminder: 20 May 2017- Doctoral Colloquium at the Association of
Internet Researchers (AoIR) Annual Conference 2017, Tartu, Estonia

The Association of Internet Researchers believes that its emerging
researchers are the best in its disparate constituent fields. In keeping
with its commitment to students’ scholarship, we continue the tradition of
bringing emerging and established scholars together through the #AoIR2017
Doctoral Colloquium. The colloquium offers PhD students working in internet
research or related fields a special, day-long forum, to be convened on 18
October 2017. For many years, this pre-conference event has provided
students with the opportunity to spend a concentrated amount of time with
senior scholars to share research projects, address methodological and
theoretical challenges, and exchange informal advice on juggling the
multiple pressures associated with job searching, publishing, and finishing
the dissertation.

This year, Ben Light and Susana Paasonen will coordinate the Doctoral

We already have a great line up of mentors including: Andrew Herman
(Wilfrid Laurier University – Canada), Sian Lincoln (Liverpool John Moores
University – UK), Brady Robards (Monash University – Australia), Jennifer
Stromer-Galley (Syracuse University – USA), Jenny Sundén (Södertörn
University – Sweden) with more to be added.

Interested students should prepare a) a two-page summary of their research.
This should provide a context for the research, describe the methods being
used, the progress to date, and primary concerns and issues; and b) a brief
statement indicating why they want to participate in this doctoral
colloquium and what they hope to get out of it. *These are due on or before
20 May 2017*. For further questions, don’t hesitate to contact the doctoral
colloquium chair at aoir2017dc [at] aoir [dot] org.
