Publishing of a book with texts and illustrations that summarise the 19 conversations about research topics that took place at the PubhD de Lisboa sessions in 2018.
In this book we gathered texts and illustrations that summarise the 19 PhD or post-doc research topics - from the sciences, humanities, engineering and arts - presented at the vibrant conversations that took place in a bar, in the ten PubhD de Lisboa sessions of 2018.
The drawings of Cirenia Arias Baldrich (in English), sketched during the sessions, and the texts of Sérgio Pereira (in Portuguese), come together in a book that is an extension in time and in space of the magic of PubhD de Lisboa project.
Marine biology, political science, environment engineering, architecture or astrophysics are only a few of the areas focused in 2018, with the names of the researchers and the research units where they produce their work. Spread the curiosity!

About the author
PubhD de Lisboa (pub + PhD) is a free monthly event where people get together in a bar or pub to talk about topics in academic research. In each event, PhD students or post-doc researchers, in whatever research areas in Sciences, Humanities, Engineering or Arts, explain their research to an audience in a bar.
This project started in October 2015, following the idea of PubhD Nottingham. This an initiative run by volunteers, without funding, organised in our free time with a lot of passion by Sérgio Pereira, Carolina Figueira and Inês Leitão.
Cirenia Arias Baldrich is a scientist and sketcher, producing drawings and animations that communicate science topics in a relaxed way. She is on Facebook and Twitter.
The PubhD de Lisboa 2018 book wishes to bring the pleasure of knowledge in the making to those not able to attend these events, and is also an enduring memory for those that regularly meet to drink and toast to human curiosity.
