CONTEXT07 hosts a doctorial consortium where PhD students have the opportunity to present their ongoing work and have it assessed and discussed by leading scholars in different disciplines contributing to the research area of CONTEXT.

The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are:

  1. to provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current research, and guidance on future research directions;
  2. to develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research; and
  3. to contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and participation in other conference events.
Topics include but are not limited to the ones listed in the CFP of the main conference which is available here.


Proceedings of the Doctorial Consortium is available online here.

The manuscript was late for printing, so a printed and bound version will be sent by mail to those who payed for it in advance; no cash refund is possible.


All sessions chaired by Luciano Serafini.
