2019 Postgraduate Conference

Disrupting Disciplines: Sharing Perspectives

Conference date: Monday 29 April 2019 10.00am - 2.00pm | Keele Hall Ballroom

Conference Logo - no time - 600x400


Closing Date: Wednesday 20 March 5.00pm

Welcome to the Institute’s fourth postgraduate conference; a great opportunity to celebrate the fantastic range and diversity of postgraduate work in the University.

All Keele postgraduate students are invited to share their work in progress and present their research, dissertation project and course-related posters to a cross disciplinary audience of peers, students and staff. Participants are expected to present their work as a poster, although artefacts or performance may also be offered. This is a different and alternative opportunity in addition to those available within the faculties and research institutes and the challenge here is to communicate your work in an accessible and inspiring way to an informed, but non-specialist audience.

We hope that as many research and taught students as possible will wish to take an active part in this innovative conference format; it is an opportunity to gain valuable experience in sharing your work beyond your own field and most importantly to hear and learn more about the diverse range of work being undertaken in different fields and from different perspectives. In this way, your conversations and interactions will encourage new ideas and fresh ways of thinking about your work. The conference will also include the Keele Three Minute Thesis Competition and new for this year, a Bake your Doctorate Competition.

Following last year's conference, Turning Heads: Changing Minds, we worked with JADE to produce a special conference journal edition.

JADE Student Edition - Oct 2018 cover

The JADE Student Edition 2018 includes all of the abstracts and some very interesting pieces from students reflecting on their experience of participating in the conference. We will once again be working with JADE to produce a 2019 conference edition.

If you are not presenting, please do come along, support colleagues and enjoy the programme.

The conference is open to visitors at any time during the day. If you wish to attend for the conference programme and for catering purposes please register by Monday April 15th 2019 here.
