What Students Are Saying About PUBZ

Being a part of the PUBZ group has been amazing. The opportunity to get advice and insight from experienced students and scholars on research, publishing and presenting at conferences is really helpful. It is great to gain support in a peer-based environment, and I feel better prepared to continue my research moving forward.

Jaclyn Marcus, MA Fashion Student

The PUBZ workshops have helped me approach my writing in a more purposeful way. They've helped me be more strategic about publishing and presenting. The other scholars and students are always very friendly and knowledgeable, and because it's a workshop setting I also feel like I can contribute rather than just sit and listen. The PUBZ sessions are a great opportunity for anyone who is looking for help and encouragement with their research.
