How to survive a PhD in Asian Studies
Centre for East Asian Studies and the Finnish University Network for Asian Studies proudly present:
HOW TO SURVIVE A PHD IN ASIAN STUDIES
A documentary about the challenges of starting and finishing a dissertation in Asian Studies and how to overcome those.
In the documentary we hear from Finnish Asia scholars who in recent years have received a PhD in Asian Studies. The film offers hard fought insights into research, fieldwork and publishing for those taking on dissertation work. For those not working on a dissertation in Asian studies, the documentary offers a look at what it means to do research in practice.
The documentary is presented in three acts:
ACT I “What Have I Got Myself Into?”
ACT II “Tools of the Trade”
ACT III “The Road Goes Ever On and On”
Register here to watch the documentary.
The film was financed by the Doctoral Program of Contemporary Asian Studies and it was filmed and edited by Samu Kolehmainen.
