13 Apr 2022 22:12 | iSchools News (Administrator)

The next installment in the iSchools European Doctoral Seminar Series will take place Friday, 20 May, at 13:00 CEST. PhD Researcher Alexandra Boutopoulou of the University of Sheffield iSchool will present her research on self-defined “wellness” bloggers and social media’s impact on the social phenomena of healthy eating, wellness discourses and lifestyle practices in the UK. Silvia Maccarini of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid will give a talk titled “Predatory publishing and bogus conferences,” exploring the strategies and business models of “predatory” journals and publishers. 

The European iSchools Doctoral Seminars Series is an ongoing forum in which doctoral students present their work to faculty and peers and make themselves available for questions and discussion. While the primary emphasis of the series is European doctoral students, any iSchool doctoral student worldwide is welcome to attend these Zoom sessions. The sessions will also be recorded and made available on the iSchools website after the event.

Visit the European Dissertation Series webpage for more information on these upcoming presentations, including presentation abstracts and information on how you can join the Zoom session.
