I’m delighted to see that in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Workplace Bullying and Harassment (June 2-4, Cardiff, Wales — see link below), top researchers on workplace bullying will host a pre-conference workshop for doctoral students. Here are some of the details:
In conjunction with the 7th Biennial Workplace Bullying and Harassment Conference being held in Cardiff from 2nd – 4th June 2010, the IAWBH will arrange a one day workshop for PhD students on Tuesday 1st June.
The workshop aims to provide doctoral students studying subjects associated with workplace bullying and harassment with an opportunity to engage with state of the art presentations on subjects focusing on conceptual as well as methodological issues.
In addition, the workshop will provide the participants with the opportunity to discuss aspects of their own research with fellow doctoral students of bullying and harassment in small groups or ‘surgeries’, each facilitated by an expert in the field. The presentations will take place in the morning whilst the ‘surgeries’will be held in the afternoon. A detailed programme for the day will be made available early in 2010.
For more info on the June 1 pre-conference workshop, go to the conference website, click “Agenda/Programme,” and scroll down to Doctoral Students’ Workshop.
In order to inject workplace bullying into the mainstream of our employment relations vocabulary for the long run, we need to encourage and support graduate and professional students who are interested in conducting research on this and related topics. That’s why this workshop is such a welcomed development.
