ISA Headquarters posted on February 13, 2017 13:57

In preparation for the Annual Convention in Baltimore this month, the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance at the University of Massachusetts-Boston provided a platform for its Graduate Students and Junior Faculty to rehearse their presentations. A first of its kind, this “Pre-ISA” workshop was a very efficient way to prepare UMB graduate students for the big event in Baltimore, encourage them to take advantage of the networking opportunities and the special annual convention programs.    

Overall, there were two thematic panels titled: “Environment, National Resources and Migration”, and “Human Security and International Organization”, followed by a round table of Professors. Each presenter was given ten minutes to present his or her research and then answered questions/received feedback from the audience. The event was free to attend and a useful experience for the graduate students and junior scholars, particularly those with no or little ISA experience.

Headquarters was delighted to be invited to this special program. Lembe Tiky, the ISA Director of Academic Development, and Giulianna Franchetti, the Program Coordinator, Communications & academic Programming, gave brief presentations of the special annual convention programs that are tailored to the needs of early career scholars. They also met with the Dean of the McCormack School of Public Policy and Global Studies, and paid a courtesy visit to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Winston Langley.
