Dear All,

Message to all Scossers from Jo Brewis:

The OU application forms are here:

Although we are a distance learning university in the main, our PhD students are all campus-based. Our studentship application for October 2019 (the first time the pathway was eligible to submit) was successful as well J.

Jo’s the pathway lead for L&OG and very happy to field enquiries.

Other news: there are all sorts of calls out for lovely conferences! Have a look at the Gender, Work and Organization conference in Kent 24-26 June, deadline for submission of abstracts just one month away, 1st November. Do browse through the list of streams – some really tremendous ones. EGOS too, of course: 2-4 July in Hamburg:

And, of course, our own lovely SCOS conference in Copenhagen:

The SCOS Board is meeting next week in Krakow, where we are hoping SCOS 2021 might be held. More on that next month.
