Event details

The Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR) is soliciting proposals from PhD students enrolled in the University of York for participation in an in-person poster workshop on Tuesday 28 June. 

The poster workshop will bring together doctoral students working on human rights issues and connect them with each other and members of staff who are also interested in human rights issues. 

Participants will receive guidance on effective poster design and presentation in advance of the workshop and feedback on their presentation, poster and research at the workshop. Participants will also be invited to a panel discussion of career paths in the field of human rights research. The formation of a University network of post-graduate human rights researchers will also be discussed at the workshop. 

Expressions of interest

We welcome expressions of interest from current and recently completed doctoral students at all stages of doctoral research at the University of York.

We are particularly keen to encourage participation from all parts of the University where research connects with human rights issues, whether or not this is the primary focus of the research or how it is normally discussed within your discipline. Connections with human rights issues in a range of ways, including the substance of the research, its potential impact, or its methodology.

We are particularly interested in ensuring that persons of all abilities can participate in the event. Directions for addressing accessibility in poster design will be circulated to participants; we are happy to discuss any accommodation needed by any participant in the workshop.

If you are interested in participating in the poster session, please complete the below Google form on or before Monday 13 June.

Further details

There will be a closed networking and careers in human rights research session for all participants from 1pm to 2pm. This will be followed by a public presentation of the posters from 2.30pm to 4pm. Posters will be introduced by way of a 3 minute talk from each researcher at the start of the public presentation.

We hope to be joined at the workshop by York academics working on human rights, human rights defenders, and students of all backgrounds.The posters will be reviewed and discussed with the researcher by an academic panel. 

Book prizes for the top posters and presentations will be presented at the end of the event; awards will include a ‘people’s choice’ award based on the opinions of audience members.  Refreshments will be provided at the workshop.

An informal online Zoom meeting will be held on Wednesday 15 June at 2pm for participants to brief them on any requirements of the presentation and poster, direct them to examples and guidelines, and to answer any questions.
