Emerging Conservator Zoom Talks: Pursuing a PhD

During the IIC Edinburgh Congress, in the Students and Emerging Conservators chatroom, multiple participants expressed their interest in talking about PhDs in our profession. Students and emerging conservators were particularly interested in meeting face-to-face virtually in order to network with other participants and to discuss this specific topic, PhDs, in more depth.

This sparked the creation of the Emerging Conservator Zoom talks.
