Dr Sarah Ganassin oversaw a highly successful Virtual Summer School, bringing together students and staff from Newcastle University and the University of Nicosia in Cyprus to explore a wide range of issues, including decolonising theoretical perspectives, intercultural communication and collaboration, with the aim of equipping doctoral students with the research skills needed to progress their academic career.
