For PhD students
Deadline for ADUM registration: 13/09/2021
Academic life can be an isolating experience for many people. For many, the role requires you to live far from home and those you love; for many, the workload demands can impact significantly on your ability to socialize and maintain relationships.
We discuss and explore:
- 1. Some of the many sources of isolation and loneliness that are inherent in our system,
- 2. Why it is so bad for us? The answer to which lies with our sense of belonging and identity.
- 3. How we can begin to change it – to increase our sense of belonging within the academic community through creating a sense of safety, connection and common threads.
