CANCELLED DUE TO UCU INDUSTRIAL ACTION. WE WILL ORGANISE ANOTHER RESEARCH BRIEF ENCOUNTERS EVENT LATER IN THE YEAR.
Join us for our second Research Brief Encounters event of the year! Back by popular demand, this is a chance to talk about your research with others who are also interested in questions relating to gender, identity, and subjectivity.
Intended as a relaxed and informal way to network and share research interests, this Research Brief Encounters event will be focused on providing bite-sized introductions to attendees’ current research in a speed dating style format. Where does the “speed dating” part come in? Attendees will be put in small groups, where everyone will be encouraged to give a short (1-2 minute) introduction to their research or to a specific issue within their research that they are trying to think through. There will be a few minutes to discuss ideas and shared interests, and then people will move to different groups to meet new people. This is a low-pressure way to share your research and to talk through ideas, as you will have a small audience at any one time.
You will then have an opportunity to spend the rest of the event chatting with new friends. No preparation is necessary. Wine and light refreshments will be provided.
As a mid-year event, we particularly encourage students currently writing or planning theses to come along to the Research Brief Encounters. The event has been designed particularly for third-year undergraduates and Masters students writing theses on CGIS-related topics, as well as for first-year DPhil students preparing for Transfer of Status. Any researcher, from any department and career stage, is very welcome though to use this opportunity to share their current research ideas. We look forward to meeting you!
