PhD Network Meeting

Last year in May, when I wasn't even sure if I would be accepted at the Research School, I participated in the first PhD Network Meeting in Örebro. This is an initiative of PhD students at Örebro University, Södertörn University of Professional Education (South Stockholm) and Gothenburg University. About 25 PhD Students were there at Östra Mark (the same place as where we later had our first Seminar about the Research Proposals).
This year, the same network gathered together at the 14th of May in Södertörn. I participated again, but this time as a Phd Student! It was the first time I was at Södertörn and it was an interesting meeting again. We could talk freely about our texts, give comments and ask questions. Afterwards, we visited a book release where Saskia Sassen answered questions and signed her new book. Later, we had dinner at La Cucaracha in Södermalm, Stockholm. It was a good day, and the journey back by train was long, so most of us slept the last part, tired of all new info and experiences.
