iConference acceptances for Marina Milosheva and Rachel Salzano #iConf2021 #iconf21

Last week two of our Centre for Social Informatics PhD students learnt that they will be contributing to iConference 2021.

On the basis of written submissions that (a) introduced their PhD projects and (b) proposed a 20 minute presentation on specific aspects of their doctoral work, first year Marina Milosheva and second year Rachel Salzano will both be participating at the iConference doctoral colloquium. The colloquium takes place across two days on 24th and 26th March.

In addition, Marina’s poster submission for the conference has also been accepted. Entitled ‘The socio-material nature of careers work: an exploration of knowledge co-creation amongst career practitioners’, Marina’s poster is concerned with career knowledge co-creation as an assemblage of information and socialisation practices. The poster content will draw on the empirical work that Marina undertook last academic year with Scotland-based career practitioners for her MSc(R) qualification (the +1 year of her ESRC/Skills Development Scotland sponsored 1+3 PhD, for which she was awarded a distinction).

Congratulations to both Marina and Rachel on their successful submissions!
