The seminar addresses dilemmas that arise between pursuing an academic career and maintaining other aspects of a fulfilling life. It is aimed at colleagues in the PhD / PostDoc phase, especially in the disciplines of law, philosophy and political science, both men and women. Many are under pressure to publish and take on administrative tasks and teaching, - often in an unfamiliar culture, and sometimes also with obligations of care.

The seminar is organised by PluriCourts as part of its 'Publish and Flourish' mentoring programme; the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights; and the Equality and Diversity Committee at the Faculty of Law.

Convenors Andreas Føllesdal and Inga Bostad.

Time and place: May 26, 2016 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM, Professorboligen, Stallen, Karl Johans gate 47
