The Doctoral Training Network for Minority Research is delighted to announce a two-day interdisciplinary workshop for doctoral students with a focus on minority research (the role of gender, religion, ethnicity and sexuality in particular), methodology and reflexivity. Doctoral students conducting research on ?related themes are invited to participate in this workshop with either short parts of their thesis or their research plan.

The workshop takes place on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th January 2018 in Turku, Finland. The workshop is organized around discussions on the researcher’s position, the concept of "minority", questions on identity, discrimination, tolerance and exclusion. The keynote speakers are

Docent Nazar Akrami, Uppsala University

The program includes keynote lectures and discussion groups led by our keynote-speakers and Professors from Åbo Akademi University (Mikael Lindfelt, Peter Nynäs Pamela Slotte, Magdalena Kmak) and De Montfort University, UK, (Rusi Jaspal).
