A fantastic opportunity for 2nd and 3rd year NWDTP students to be methods Theme leaders at the Methods X Conference in Lancaster on 4th July. We have theme strand vacancies in the following methods:
* Archives and Collections
* Quantitative methods
METHODS X CONFERENCE
Methods Exchange (known as MethodsX) is a Methods Northwest initiative. The conference will be attended by 1st year NWSSDTP students and other interested PGRs. The 4 themes are Quantitative methods, Fieldwork, New Forms of Data and finally Archives and Collections.
Leaders will be drawn from across the four institutions represented in the ESRC North-West Social Science DTP (Manchester, Lancaster, Liverpool and Keele).
Theme leaders will be responsible for planning and facilitating a strand of the conference in July.
Networking is crucial to developing an academic identity as well as getting the support you need to complete you doctorate and launch your career. Leading a network of this kind will enable you to develop your networking skills. Of course it is also a chance to discuss your chosen research methods with other PGRs and academics across four institutions with whom you might not otherwise meet. The ability to organise an academic panel session is valuable academic-career experience. You will take a leading, organising, and chairing role for your session at the MethodsX conference just as someone proposing a panel at an academic conference would do. We anticipate up to 100 delegates for the event so your experience would go beyond organising a small workshop or seminar.
If you are interested in leading one of these themes please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
