ILAS Postgraduate Conference 2018
Turning Heads: Changing Minds
Thursday 19th April 2018
11.00am - 4.00pm
Keele Hall Ballroom
Welcome to the Institute’s third postgraduate conference; a great opportunity to celebrate the fantastic range and diversity of postgraduate work in the University.
All 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.
This year again, we are delighted to be working with JADE to present a special conference journal edition, available here.
This will include the conference abstracts, and this year we will be particularly encouraging your reflective pieces on your experience and learning.
