It just occurred to me that maybe we could try and find a sort of common theme - something all of us PhD 'sufferers' come across, are confronted with - to get past the general 'hello, I am so and so doing this and that' stage.... I realize that is easier said than done because we are all coming from different angles, but maybe we could start by organizing a 'topic-pool' and pick something to work on? For instance, 'how combine a healthy, interesting and satisfying social life with the hectic (?) life as a PhD researcher', or 'how to deal with the zillion interesting leads and side-tracks that you come across while doing your research, but that are not really pertinent to your research question(s)'. Just an idea...

Thanks, Paul, for this great site on how to design scientific posters. It gives really useful tips and tricks. I will certainly use some of the info for my next poster session.

Paul Wren: this site is very helpful, thanks! I've always presented papers at conferences, but this year will be the first time I've done the poster session, and I had no clue how to do this.

I just came across a site that might be useful: Advice on designing scientific posters. It's intended for biology students, but the information looks pretty universal.

Is there anybody who plans to do or does fieldwork in sri lanka?

Hi, I'm Kristine. I'm a PhD student in Norway, Bergen. I'm still in the pre-fieldwork phase of my project, but I'll be going to Vanuatu next January to study land-related issues. Nice idea for a group, people!
Any other 'Pacific anthropologists' out there?

Hi... I am also Maria. I'm in an Applied Anth PhD program at Columbia University, and am soon to embark on dissertation research in New Orleans, LA. I look forward to keeping each other afloat!

Hello all, I am Maria, currently doing a PhD in Anthropology at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Up to my ears in work but not drowning (yet). I hope we can keep each other afloat through this group.

Hello everyone. My name is Reza; I am PhD candidate in the dept. of anth. at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. I am currently doing fieldwork in (exotic!) London. I am very happy to have stumbled upon this group and hope to contribute as much as I will no doubt gain.
