This workshop will be for the students participating in the Emerging Archival Scholars Program (EASP). This workshop deals with practical aspects and strategies of applying to a Ph.D. program in Information Studies. Topics will include a general overview of Ph.D. programs in Information Studies, the application process of applying to graduate school and Ph.D. programs, how to write a statement of purpose and/or personal statement, how to obtain strong letters of recommendation, funding for Ph.D. students, and choosing the right graduate program. We will also provide a basic overview of archival education and research that pertains to archives in society (e.g. representation and history, plurality, and digitization).
