D!ARC net:work is intended as an open and friendly for all disciplines and diverse academic levels. In
particular, we provide a space for PhD candidates – to meet, to discuss and also to present
work. PhD candidates will get feedback on ongoing work, or even first ideas for a potential
research project from an interdisciplinary community.
We aim at fostering discussions and building an interdisciplinary community throughout the
University of Klagenfurt around the topic of “Humans in the Digital Age” and related
The meeting is divided into two parts. In the first part (ca. 1h), a PhD student will give us a
short input into their work (20 min. max), followed by input from a discussant and a general
discussion. The second part of the meeting (1⁄2 hour) will be used for informal exchange and
networking between the different participants.
In order to keep the meeting open and friendly, we follow the idea of a brown bag lunch.
Feel free to bring your own food! Cookies will be provided by D!ARC.
The event will be in English.
