At the invitation of the Dean of the Graduate School, supervisors from all our faculties joined in an informal conversation about the benefits and challenges of supervising PhD researchers from different educational and national backgrounds.
We welcome you to the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGSH). We host over 500 PhD candicates at our lively, spacious campuses in the cosmopolitan cities of Rotterdam and The Hague.
We offer dozens of courses to nurture innovative and interdisciplinary research excellence. The diverse international backgrounds of our candidates enhance a vibrant academic community.
The EGSH is a joint venture of:
- Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB)
- Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC)
- Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil)
- International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague
- Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM)
- Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS)
- The Dutch Research Institute For Transitions (DRIFT)
The Dean’s Masterclass has been a regular event in the Graduate School and is meant to pay attention to the wider academic development of PhD candidates.
In the yearly survey of the PhD council of the graduate school there was an interesting request to pay more attention to feminist research methodologies. Catering to this, we are organising a masterclass presented by our dean prof. dr. Liesbet van Zoonen on this subject.
Do you miss working alongside your colleagues while you are stuck at home? Working from home for a long period of time can create a lack of motivation, distractions and low efficiency. Without our usual social informal contact at the office, your work can become extra challenging.
The EGSH PhD Council invites you to join one of their ‘Shut up and Write’ sessions. These are working sessions where you connect to a Microsoft Teams videocall together with 4 – 9 of your colleagues.
