TASA Rapid Peer Support Session – postgrads encouraged to attend!

Once a month, TASA is hosting a rapid peer support session via Zoom. Each session will involve two speakers, who will talk for five minutes about a problem they are facing in their sociological work. This is an opportunity to talk candidly with others, to develop ideas and work you may be finding difficult to progress in a supportive and collegial space. Other participants will then have twenty minutes to ask questions of each speaker. Please limit this time to brief questions only – there will be later opportunities to engage in dialogue, give advice, and suggest readings. Fill out this form to volunteer as a speaker. TASA Secretary Ash Watson will then be in touch to organise a session with you.
Postgrad Research in the next 6 months – made specifically for TASA Postgrads
When: Thursday 14th of May, 12:30pm - 1:30pm AEST,
Where: Zoom - https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83569746464
A panel discussion of the challenges and opportunities when doing Postgrad research as a result of Covid-19. The panel will include a postgraduate and international student representative, postgrad research supervisors, and experts in precarious employment. The panel will also take question from the audience.
Hope to see you are these events.
