The Lonely PhD

The Lonely PhD

By Sherran Clarence

This podcast is hosted by the author of the blog, ‘How to write a PhD in a hundred steps (or more)’, Dr Sherran Clarence. The podcast connects with posts on the blog that focus on what makes a doctorate - and becoming an academic - an often-lovely endeavour for many researchers, especially those who are under-represented in academia. On this podcast I chat to many different scholars about what makes academia lonely and frustrating for many and how we can work together to make academia kinder, more representative and more powerfully diverse and socially just. Join us and be inspired!
