April 13: Graduate School of Archaeology PhD presentations day

The GSA PhD presentations day is a get-to-know-each-others-research day, and a ‘Master class’ for PhD students, aimed to improve presentation skills. Chaired by Prof Dr Miguel John Versluys, a group of PhD students will present a paper on their research topic.

The (peer) audience will evaluate both the contents and presentation skills after each individual paper. Miguel John will conclude all presentations with a short ‘wrap up’ of the strong aspects of the presentation, and summarize the recommendations for improvement (if any).

On April 13 a group of PhD students (who have started in 2011, 2013/14 and 2015/16) are scheduled; please take a look at the preliminary programme to find out who’s turn it is to give a short paper.
