Review of the Keele Postgraduate Conference 2021


Returned to its traditional late Spring/early Summer slot, the sixth Keele Postgraduate conference saw staff and students from across the University convening once more in the less traditional format of an online event.

The conference is a collaboration between the Keele Doctoral Academy (KDA) and the Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and was chaired throughout by Professor Alexandra Lamont, Director of the Keele Doctoral Academy and Professor of Music Psychology.

Students had the opportunity to present their research through the following competitions:

Poster - showcasing research in a visually impactful way with an easy to read poster, accessible to a non-specialist audience with engaging language.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) - students present their work using one slide and in just 3 minutes.
Advertise your Research – in memory of our colleague, Dr Rachel Green, a brand new competition challenging students to think creatively and advertise their research in a novel, non-traditional format.
Open Research - recognising and rewarding postgraduate students who have made—or who demonstrate concrete plans to make—strong contributions to the principles of Open Research in their doctoral studies.
