Listen as they reflect on different traditions in East Asia, their personal experiences of past new years, the soft power appeal of these celebrations, and the impact of a global pandemic on the celebrations.

[Careers Podcast, ep. 2] What if the future of work was… well, no work at all?

Might sound like a fantasy. Or maybe it sounds a little dystopic. But Alexandre Maaza stopped by to make a pretty convincing argument for a future where we may need to change our perceptions of work, salaries and everything that goes with it.

Introducing “ABD Stories”

Some fifty doctoral students graduate each year from the Graduate Institute. If pursuing doctoral studies always implies strategic choices with regards to the research topics, the path towards a thesis also remains a journey bespeckled with experiences and encounters. Because each path towards a PhD is unique, this podcast series is dedicated to the vagaries of doctoral students’ lives in Geneva.

Paroma Ghose defended her PhD thesis in June 2020. In the first episode, she tells us about how she studied the lyrics of songs by rappers in France between 1981 and 2012, in order to write a history of the “Other”, or what she termed the “Fifth Estate”, in France.
