Themed Conference (Humanities and Social Sciences)
Themed Interdisciplinary Conference
ABOUT THE EVENT
This two day conference, organised by and for research students (with support from University Graduate College staff), encourages doctoral researchers to consider how a particular theme may come to bear on their own subjects of research. The approach allows participation by students from many humanities and social science disciplines, and provides a framework for interdisciplinary cross-fertilisation. The event attracts doctoral students – both as speakers and delegates – from departments and institutions across Wales, the UK and overseas.
The event enables research students to:
- present their work in a supportive environment and receive feedback
- broaden their perspective on their research and establish links with students from various institutions
- gain insight into cross-disciplinary comparisons of different methodologies applied to the same research questions
- develop confidence and ability to present research and deal with questions
WHO CAN ATTEND
This conference is open to all MPhils and PhDs across the humanities and social sciences from departments and institutions across Wales, the UK and overseas.
Please note that the deadline for abstracts has now passed but if you would like to attend as a non-presenting delegate, please complete and return a delegate booking form, available to down load from the call for papers web page.
