This workshop responds to the current pandemic by offering PhD students an opportunity to reflect on how the pandemic has impacted their research project and how they can adapt to it in ways that enable to continue doing research. The workshop will provide space to know and apply digital methods in social research, and familiarise with digital geographies. Senior scholars working with digital methods and/or digital geographies will share their knowledge and experience in keynotes and activities with students. Individual and group activities will enable students to reflect on and apply insights from the keynotes. The workshop's final objective is to enable students to rethink their research projects and methodologies to continue research in pandemic conditions.


This workshop is conducted in English.


The workshop is organized fully online over two days and involves student presentations, keynotes, discussions and practical activities.
