Rachel Tan - “The 2017 Global Studies Research Conference at Singapore”


Rachel Tan

Rachel is a PhD candidate at the Higher Education Development Centre, University of Otago. She likes to meet people and is a big fan of nature and photography.

Searching for my first international conference on my research interest in globalisation, I stumbled upon Common Ground that hosts the Global Studies Research Network. My application was accepted and I attended the 10th Global Studies Conference (8-9 June 2017) at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

Before I share my experiences, I want to express my gratitude to be given this conference experience by the generosity of:

  • 1. my institution, the University of Otago for providing the logistics and
  • 2. the Global Studies Research Network for providing free participation by selecting me as its Emerging Scholar Awardee, which I wrote about here.
