PGR Tea(chers)
Online

Are you a postgraduate who teaches? Want to talk to others about your experiences? Or, haven’t had the chance to teach but are interested in what it’s like to teach?
 
The Teaching Café will be hosting its next PGR Tea(chers) on 3 March, at the earlier time of 11:00-11:45am.
 
The informal event will open with lightning talks from guest speakers on the topic, ‘Managing the movement of teaching from face-to-face to online', followed by a longer discussion that could lead pedagogically anywhere.

Here's what a couple of attendees said about the previous PGR Tea(chers):
- "Its fast pace allowed for quick and reactive exchanges, its horizontality meant that everybody was welcome to intervene freely"
- "Really great to hear from people with much more experience than I share their advice…"


Head to the Postgraduate Teachers Channel for more information and to attend - don't forget to bring a hot drink and a snack!

This masterclass is aimed at Post Graduate Research (PGR) students to provide a snapshot of strategies and tips that you can use to look after your wellbeing.

You will come away with a range of practical tools and resources that you can use to remain motivated, productive and that can help you to manage competing demands.

MITN Webinar - Politics of Exhaustion: Entanglements of violence, control and resistance in Europe’s borderlands, Dr Leonie Ansems de Vries, King's College London

Dr Leonie Ansems de Vries joins us to present her work on migration in Europe, including a screening of her video short Migrant Agency and the Moving Image.

This presentation and video screening focuses on the politics of exhaustion in migratory spaces of transit in Europe. Politics of exhaustion refers to the ways in which exhaustion is employed as a tool of governance to control people forced to (not-)move and how it is endured and resisted as a lived experience. It highlights the violent impacts of the management of movement; its accumulated effects over time and across spaces. The short video screening shows these practices at play in the informal migrant spaces in Northern France. Drawing on intersectional scholarship, the presentation will also discuss how strategies of exhaustion are disrupted and resisted by migrants and those supporting them, even though these struggles often remain closely entangled with violent bordering practices.

To join our Teams webinar, please click here slightly before the start time and do let us know if you experience any difficulties in joining. It would be helpful if you could let us know in advance that you plan to join.
