Calling all postgraduate students!
Beginning in the academic year 2016-2017, the Criminal Justice Partnership are starting a postgraduate criminal justice seminar series. These events will provide a great opportunity for doctoral students to present their research in an informal setting to a varied audience (including School postgraduate students/colleagues, the wider University community and external guests) while also acting as a socialising and networking space. The series is open to ALL students conducting research on, or of interest to, criminal justice, criminology and policing. The presentation formats and topics will vary and speakers are free to present at all stages of their research, covering any element of their research interests. Suggestions for external speakers are always welcome and a timetable of events for the upcoming year will be produced. Below are the details for event one:
Postgraduate Christmas Conference, Wednesday 7th December 1-4 p.m.
Are you currently doing a PhD or Masters dissertation on topics within Criminal Justice, Criminology or Policing? Fancy an opportunity to present about your research, gain some valuable feedback, and network? Submit an abstract to the Postgraduate Christmas Conference!
Presentations will be 15 minutes long. We will be joined by Prof. Stuart Kirby to do a closing chair discussion, and there will be opportunities to ask questions of your peers and share tales about the research process.
The event will be accompanied by mulled wine and appropriately-Christmassy cakes/nibbles, and we will head for a meal (optional) in the city after the event. Students at ALL stages of their research are welcome to submit an abstract and the event is open to all.
Please submit an abstract (250 words maximum) to Emily Cooper (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 11th November 2016
