Postgraduate Community at Keele Hall
With visiting fellows and collaborators from across the world, the Institute mobilises a lively research community and enriches the cultural and academic environment for all postgraduates at Keele, bringing together researchers across Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences. In this way it is a home for interdisciplinary research at Keele and getting involved in the Institute activities extends and enriches the cultural and academic environment for all postgraduates.
Working with the Keele Doctoral Academy and the Keele Postgraduate Association (KPA), the Keele Postgraduate Conference and the Three Minute Thesis Competition are great opportunities for postgraduates to communicate the relevance of their work to a lay audience.
The architecturally inspiring space of Keele Hall is a fantastic location for the Institute’s engaging events programme, including lectures, research workshops, seminars and conferences. Together these offer spaces and places for meeting and working with researchers from across the disciplines.
ILAS is a great place to make new connections, gain fresh perspectives and start thinking a little bit differently.
