In keeping with its commitment to students’ scholarship in the Association of Internet Researchers, the IR14.0 Doctoral Colloquium offers PhD students working in internet research or a related field a special forum on October 23, 2013. For many years, this pre-conference event has provided students with the opportunity to spend some hours with senior scholars talking about their research projects, addressing methodological and theoretical challenges, and getting informal advice on juggling the multiple pressures associated with job searching, publishing, and finishing the dissertation.
This year, Annette Markham will coordinate the Doctoral Colloquium and will be joined by colleagues including:
Tom Boellstorf, University of California, Irvine
Steve Jones, University of Illinois at Chicago
Mia Consalvo, Concordia University

Lori Kendall, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
