How Hidden Narratives Challenge Authority (2)

This is the second one-day liberal and performing arts mini conference organised by postgraduate research students at the University of Gloucestershire in association with the Being Human Research Centre. It is part of an initiative to improve the research environment, explore the human condition, and build interdisciplinary links. The day will include two keynote speakers, nine short presentations from researchers and opportunities for questions.

We are interested in examining the relationships between the individual and modern society, including but not restricted to themes of margins and marginalisation, borders, exile, anti-elitism and the process of research. Speakers will be drawn from a range of disciplines and there is an emphasis on inter-disciplinary research and collaboration. Our aim is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for speakers, to encourage those with less experience of presenting. Please contact us if you are interested in making a 20 minute presentation.

Refreshments and lunch are included and attendance is free. You can register for the conference at Eventbrite. More details of the programme will be published as they become available, and we welcome participants from other universities.

The conference is sponsored by the Being Human Research Priority Area at the University of Gloucestershire.

I enjoyed it.
Interesting for a sociologist to see how other disciplines give papers.
