ILAS Postgraduate Conference 2018

Turning Heads: Changing Minds

 

Conference date: Thursday 19th April 2018 11.00am - 4.00pm Keele Hall Ballroom

 

**** 2ND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS ****

Deadline: Wednesday 21st March 2018


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.

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 Thursday 12th April 2018.

Please register using your Keele account e-mail address.
