    The STR Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who are in the dissertation proposal stage of their PhD programs.  The objective of the consortium is to support doctoral students as they shape their dissertations.  Students will have opportunities to discuss their work in small groups with distinguished faculty and peers, to meet and interact with future colleagues, and to enhance their scholarship, teaching and overall development.

    The 2021 Doctoral Consortium co-chairs are Isin Guler (University of North Carolina) and Metin Sengul (Boston College).  The tentative faculty panel includes (by last name in alphabetic order): Seth Carnahan (Washington University in St Louis), Trey Cummings (John Hopkins University), Caroline Flammer (Boston University), Martin Ganco (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Hyunjin Kim (INSEAD), Marlo Raveendran (University of California, Riverside), Charlotte Ren (Temple University), Violina Rindova (University of Southern California), Robert Seamans (New York University), Matthew Semadeni (Arizona State University), Gurneeta Vasudeva Singh (University of Minnesota), and Todd Zenger (University of Utah).

    All applicants will be notified of admission decisions by the end of June 2021.
