quilledink Posted May 25, 2015 Share Posted May 25, 2015 While working on my Master's thesis I decided, on a whim, to submit an abstract of it to a large (and prominent) conference in my field. I'll be starting a PhD in the fall, and I guess I assumed it was good practice for abstract writing--not necessary that I'd get in! But I did, and now I'm wondering: when is it too early to be presenting at conferences? I know that I'm at an awkward career stage--I'm moving from a country where having an MA before a PhD is normal, whereas it's not in the States and so a first year PhD student has much less experience than I do. But still--MA under my belt or not, the first year (semester, really!) in a PhD seems like it's a bit too early to be presenting. Anyone have any thoughts/experience with this? How did it work out? (For reference: I'm in a field which blends humanities and social sciences. Most research is communicated via texts and articles in journals) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
