APSA Dissertation Workshops bring together 6-8 PhD candidates and 2 faculty moderators to present and workshop one chapter from each student’s dissertation. The goal of the workshop is to offer candidates a space to workshop their ideas with faculty active in their field and to begin building an academic network. This summer’s workshop is on international law, human rights, and the politics of rights in international relations.
Each participant will present a chapter from their dissertation and receive feedback from faculty leaders, Audrey Comstock (Arizona State University) and Heather Smith-Cannoy (Arizona State University). The goal of the workshop is to guide scholars to think about the different methods used to study legal and rights topics, facets of international law, definitions and measurements of human rights, and political contexts as they develop their dissertation projects.
