Our departmental Asian Cultural and Creative Industries Research Society have been in action again, this year determined to involve more PhD students in addition to the strong MA student membership.
So recently they held a PhD networking event which included a guest talk on Contemporary East Asian Studies, a PhD study experience sharing session with Dr Jocelyn Yi-Hsuan Lai who recently got her doctoral degree from CMCI, and a group discussion on how to develop their research network still further.
This event was co-organised by CMCI current PhD student Mengying Li, and attracted more than 25 PhD students and researchers from a variety of academic institutions in the UK.
The society’s academic adviser is CMCI’s Dr Hye-Kyung Lee (pictured in action at the event). More information about the society can be found on the society’s own blog: http://kingsasiancci.wordpress.com
