I realised that this blog has not had any posts recently, so I thought I’d write something.
PubhD is still going strong, and is still spreading to other cities.
At Nottingham we’re fully booked to July 2016. July 2016! We can’t give concrete dates for events beyond that as we have to wait for the football fixtures to be announced in June 2016 (we don’t like to hold an event on the same day as a football match as the pub gets very busy pre-match and makes it difficult to prepare the room ahead of our event). Any speakers that want to speak in August 2016 and beyond can still contact us to leave their details and we’ll get back in touch when we have firm dates.
And we’ve finally broken out of the British Isles. PubhD Lisboa now exists!
They had their first event last week and the organiser, Sérgio Pereira, said:
The first PubhD Lisbon was a success! More than 20 people came to the event and engaged in a lively conversation. The speakers just loved it.
Want a PubhD in your city? They are easy to set up, speakers love speaking at them, and the audience loves hearing about the research happening on their doorstep. Get in touch – we can answer your questions, provide some tips and advice and and hopefully help you get going.
