Research Staff Conference 2019 - Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
In 2019 we held two Research Staff Conferences, to highlight the fantastic research of our Science staff, and our Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences staff respectively. Our Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Research Staff Conference was held in The Lakehouse, Ron Cooke Hub, on 16 May 2019.
The conference was opened with a welcome talk by Dr Keith Allen, Deputy Director of Arts and Humanities Research Centre (HRC) and joint Research Champion for Culture and Communication. Followed by an update on the training, support and mentoring available and how researchers can get involved - by Dr Karen Clegg, BRIC and Dr Namrata Ravichandra Ganneri, Research Staff Liaison Officer for Arts, Humanities and Social Science.
The afternoon included a session run by Darcey Gillie and was very well received and noted by many as the best element:
"The careers session was the most useful (and unexpected!). Hearing from someone who has done research in the field and had concrete points to make in an engaging manner was helpful and thought provoking."
"Only attended the career management session but it was VERY useful! Enjoyed focus on equipping us with tools to discover what we want from our careers rather than just a discussion of jobs market. Only issue is that I feel it could have benefited from an additional hour."
"Careers session was excellent."
Colleagues from our Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences departments gave a series of short presentations:
Annis Stenson, Department of Education – Student Leaders’ Conceptualisations of Sexual Consent and Violence.
Francesco Ramponi, Centre for Health Economics – Costs, Consequences and Choices: Economic evaluation of alcohol interventions.
Stewart Cooper, Department of Education - Pause Location, What Does it Mean for Oral Fluency?
Jamie Khoo, Centre for Women's Studies - Beauty Matters: A Study of Women’s Responses to Beauty Ideals.
Adrian Gonzalez, Department of Environment and Geography – Mapping the ‘lived realities’ of Environmental Justice in Peru’s Loreto Region.
Annie Irvine, Department of Language and Linguistic Science – “That’s all my questions done. So now we can have a chat about you.”
