Reading with other people, in a quiet and inspiring environment, is an effective way to boost your focus. Our reading retreat last for three hours, and start with a short planning session where we set goals for our reading and finish with a short summary and reflection. We take breaks together, have some coffee (and fika!) and talk about how things are going.

You bring your own literature and read texts of your own choice. The retreat is held in English, but you are welcome to read in whatever language you like.

The retreat is open to all PhD-students at LUSEM.


Workshops in Reference management tools

Reference management tools can help you manage your references. With a reference management tool you can create and organize your references and easily insert citations in your text and create bibliographies.

It is possible to attend both workshops.
