From April 18th you are not allowed to wear watches during exams at the University of Oslo. The reason for that is that there is a lot of new smart watches on the market, and it is not possible to distinguish these from the traditional watches. The clocks must henceforth be put in bags, jacket pockets or the like along with mobile phones, MP3 players and other electronic equipment.

Wearing a wristwatch during the examination could be considered an attempt to cheat on an equal footing with other illegal aids. It will be visible clocks in all the examination premises.

The Department of Political Science will arrange a meeting for students who are planning, or considering, to do field work as part of their MA thesis. The aim of this meeting is to ensure that students are sufficiently prepared to do field work, in particular in (post)conflict countries, and to address practical as well as academic issues connected to doing field work.

The meeting will be held by senior research fellow Francesca R. Jensenius, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs.

Her main research interest is how electoral dynamics and institutional design affect different types of inequality in society. This she pursues through a multi-method approach, combining large-scale data collection and analysis with extensive field work.

Tuesday November 15th, at 15.15pm, room 847.
