The prepared summary will be made available for other participants of the Doctoral Consortium to allow feedback and questions on the research. Since the goals of the DC include building the community, participants will be expected to read all of the Extended Abstracts of your colleagues prior to the beginning of the consortium with a goal of preparing careful and thoughtful critique.

Applicants should send the research proposal by email to Gabrielė Stupurienė ( by November 15th, 2019. When submitting the applications, please put "VU-DC-2019-<Last Name>" in the Subject line.
