The SGSAH Research Blog features regular weekly posts dealing with the trials and triumphs of life as a doctoral researcher within the arts and humanities in Scotland. As well as insight from our resident blogger, guest bloggers will share their varied experiences of the PhD process.

The SGSAH Research Blog can be found here: https://sgsahblog.com/

The blog engages with the SGSAH cohort to discuss what it means to be a doctoral researcher within the arts and humanities in Scotland today. We engage with all doctoral researchers within the arts and humanities in Scotland, funded and unfunded, full and part-time, all are welcome!

Guest bloggers
We welcome guest bloggers to engage with the issues surrounding life as a doctoral researcher which are important to you. Currently the blog is run by Garry McLaughlin. Garry is a 3rd year PhD researcher in Comic Studies at the University of Dundee with co-supervision at University of St. Andrews. His project explores queer temporality in comics and graphic novels, researching trans-temporal narrative mechanics within the systems of comics. It is practice-based and he is currently working on the key output, a comic called PRAXIS. He is from and resides in Glasgow, UK and has lived here for most of his life. Find him on Instagram as @queertempo and see progress on the comic at @praxis_comic. To contribute to the blog, contact Garry at garry.mclaughlin@glasgow.ac.uk and don't forget to check out the blog's twitter page @sgsahblog!

Why should doctoral researchers blog about their research?

  • It provides a home for things reluctantly cut from publications
  • It allows early feedback on ideas and try them out for the first time in public
  • It allows the exchange of early thoughts with others working on the issues that concern students
  • It provides a platform to share struggles with others who are going through the same thing
