The 2007 Summer Doctoral Programme will maintain the high standard for rigorous intellectual interaction, inter-disciplinary exchange and novel research methods and goals, while introducing new approaches. The Cambridge edition will draw substantially upon the OII's work and faculty, integrating it with the Berkman Center's research and community, and also injecting participation by a diverse and accomplished group of colleagues and friends.
The course structure will be broadly similar to previous years' Programmes with daily research seminars and discussions led by leading academics, practitioners and entrepreneurs. All students will be asked to present their research to their peers in informal seminars and we will request abstracts for these seminars before the start of the Programme (details to follow). Seminars and other teaching should average approximately five hours contact time per day, leaving students with plenty of opportunity to meet informally with faculty and fellow students, work on their own research, and possibly even develop new projects.
