Greetings! I am an incoming second-year sociology PhD student. During Y1, I submitted a theoretical seminar paper for a full paper session at the ASA annual meeting (mostly just to practice writing abstracts) and, much to my surprise - it was accepted. The problem (aside from that it currently has no original research) is that the paper's arguments need a lot of fleshing out. I didn't have time to revise it by the deadline so, it is what it is. My question: how would one go about presenting such a paper? I know people generally present original research at conferences. I was thinking that I would primarily focus on one of several arguments and the direction I would *like* to take it. Any advice would be very much appreciated. I should note that I would eventually like to revise and publish this paper! Thanks in advance. Signed, a neophyte sociologist
So I am rapidly approaching my Master's thesis defense and I have to give a seminar length presentation over my thesis (~40-45 min presentation, ~5-10 min for questions) to the department/university public before doing the defense with my committee in a closed room. I am fairly well-practiced with giving conference length presentations (~12 min presentation, ~3 min for questions), but I have only ever given presentations longer than this in a handful of classes and those were definitely different beasts. Does anyone have any tips on preparing this type of presentation to a scientific, but not subfield specific audience? Also if anyone has tips on how to practice for this sort of presentation I would greatly appreciate it since I know practicing something that long will not be nearly as easy as practicing a conference presentation.
