Of All the Monsters under My Bed - Prologue

At the end of the day, in each other’s company are always only I and the monsters under my bed. Some of them come out regularly screaming for my attention, while others have laid dormant for years biding their time for a perfect moment to jump out and stoke fears in me: fears of failing, of not being good enough – never being so, of letting others down, of recognizing those selves in me whom I’ve tried to undo, remake, or even reject.  Fears of those fears; fears of discovering new monsters.

When a network and its training go online

RECOMS Training Event 5: Doctoral School: Coupled Social-Ecological Systems and Complexity took place online via Zoom (22 – 31 July 2020) with an extension of an optional writing retreat until 5th August. The event was hosted and co-organized by the Rachel Carson Center, LMU. During the training, all 15 Fellows participated, as did mentors representing all beneficiaries, the RECOMS partners, and also four external presenters and trainers. 

Eat, write, love

As an ITN early stage researcher, every once and again you are asked a question: “So what do you do during your training events?” Training events, happening every half-year, get me giddy from excitement about a month in advance, and as it goes, I like telling people about that. So being confronted with this question rather regularly, I must have an answer, right? Well, not exactly.
