Graduate Student/PhD Workshop jointly held by ECREA’s Crisis

We would like to invite all Young Scholars to apply for the
_comprehensive YECREA Graduate Student/PhD Workshop_*until May 31*. The
workshop is organised within the ECREA's Crisis Communication Section /
6th International Crisis Communication Conference that will take place
in Leeds from October 3 – October 5, 2019.
The aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for doctoral students
whose Ph.D. and research interest is related to the wide and
interdisciplinary field of Crisis Communication. The cost, inclusive of
a simulation or social media workshop, is £80. This will include
lunches, tea, and snacks throughout the two days as well as any
materials for the workshop.
*October 1 from 12 – 5 pm *
On the first day of the workshop, Ralph Tench (Leeds Beckett University,
UK) will give a short lecture on how Corporate Social Responsibility
Research can contribute to and be interlinked with questions of the
Crisis Communication Research Field. This lecture will be followed by a
joint discussion. Thereafter, participants present an outline of their
Ph.D. project and receive feedback by two distinguished scholars with a
broad experience in supervising PhD projects – Ralph Tench and Audra
Diers-Lawson (both Leeds Beckett University).
*October 2 from 9 am – 4 pm *
In the morning of the second day of the workshop, Stephen Croucher
(Massey University, NZ) will give a short lecture on how Cross-Cultural
Research con contribute to and be interlinked with questions of the
Crisis Communication Research Field. This lecture will also be followed
by a joint discussion. Thereafter, participants present an outline of
their Ph.D. project and receive feedback by two distinguished scholars
with a broad experience in supervising PhD projects – Stephen Croucher
and Audra Diers-Lawson.
After lunch, participants can choose between two half-day sessions – a
Simulation Workshop and a Social Media Analysis Workshop. The Simulation
Workshop will have you experience a crisis simulation, discuss
integrating simulations into classroom and training, and recommendations
for developing simulations with Audra Diers-Lawson. During the Social
Media Workshop, Daniel Vogler, the Head of Research for the Research
Institute of Public and Society at the University of Zurich, will
introduce the analysis of Twitter. Please note that these two workshops
are open for all interested researchers and can also be booked
separately through the conference website for £30 including a buffet lunch.
_Preparing the PhD Presentations:_
The presentations should address the following questions:
1. What is the problem that motivated you to conduct the research presented?
2. What is (are) your leading research question(s)?
3. How do you try to answer these questions methodologically?
4. What do you hope to contribute to your field of research?
5. Optional: What are your (preliminary) findings?
6. Which challenges are you facing at the moment?
While regular conference panels rarely offer the opportunity for
speakers to receive in-depth feedback, this workshop is conceived as a
separate and more personal space to present to and receive feedback from
experienced scholars as well as learn more about Crisis Communication
and possible connection points within your research. The workshop mainly
aims at Ph.D. students whose research project is still at an early
stage, but it is also possible to participate if you already have
preliminary findings. After a presentation of up to 20 minutes, the
senior scholars serving as respondents will provide an initial feedback,
followed by a Q&A session involving the other workshop participants as well.
To apply for the workshop, please prepare the following two documents:
* an extended abstract of up to 500 words outlining your project
* a short letter of motivation stating why you would like to participate
and which questions you want to see addressed; it should also mention
your doctoral advisor as well as a rough time schedule for your project.
The documents must be submitted to Janina Schier
((Janina.Schier /at/ ifkw.lmu.de) <mailto:(Janina.Schier /at/ ifkw.lmu.de)>) until
*May 31, 2019*. In case your proposal is accepted, you will receive a
*notification by mid-June 2019*. There is no need to be a member of the
Crisis Communication Section to apply, but please note that the capacity
of the workshop is limited. A jury will select the applications
according to standards of academic quality like theoretical foundation,
stringency, and originality.
If you are also interested to register for the subsequent conference
dealing with Risk and Crisis Communication in Leeds (October 3 – October
5), please check the conference website:
