In 2019 we held two Research Staff Conferences, to highlight the fantastic research of our Science staff, and our Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences staff respectively. Our Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences Research Staff Conference was held in The Lakehouse, Ron Cooke Hub, on 16th 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, RETT and Dr Namrata Ravichandra Ganneri, Research Staff Liaison Officer for Arts, Humanities and Social Science.
Colleagues from our Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences departments then gave a series of short presentations:
