A Multi-disciplinary Postgraduate Workshop
Aberystwyth University, 21 June 2018, 9.30-4.30
The Centre for Welsh Politics and Society (CWPS) is organising a workshop for PhD students who are conducting research focusing on Wales. The event is free, but registration is required.
Unlike most of postgraduate events which often have a disciplinary focus, this one-day workshop is multidisciplinary. It invites postgraduate students from various social science disciplines to share their research ideas, experiences and practices within a multi-disciplinary audience, encouraging them to reflect on their research beyond disciplinary boundaries. The event further provides a great opportunity for networking and meeting other students with common interests.
In the morning, we will use various workshop sessions inviting postgraduate students to introduce their work, reflect on methodologies used in their research and discuss the practical challenges and advantages of conducting research in Wales, as well as reflecting on ways in which ‘Wales’ is conceptualised and understood in their research fields. In the afternoon, we will run sessions on two important topics: the impact agenda and careers. There will be an advice session focusing on dissemination and developing the impact of your research, both within a Welsh context and beyond. Finally, we have invited three individuals who have recently completed their PhDs to offer their insights, experiences and tips on pursuing careers, both in academic and non-academic contexts.
We look forward to welcoming you to this event!
