2013 AoIR Doctoral Colloquium

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.

Tom Boellstorf, University of California, Irvine
