The purpose of this blog is to discuss issues of concern to academics, other professional researchers, and particularly Ph.D. students. I will be sharing occasional thoughts on topics I have spent a lot of time thinking about including research ethics, fieldwork in violence-affected settings, work/life balance, and trying to make research useful for practitioners, policymakers, and other non-academic audiences. I hope readers will engage and add to these discussions in the comment section.
If you are a Ph.D. student and would like to see a post on a particular topic or question that you think other Ph.D. students would also be interested in, I welcome suggestions by email or anonymously below.
