Join us for the 8th annual UNSW Arts and Social Sciences Postgraduate Student Conference
Arts & Social Sciences Research: Relevance, Responsiveness and Impact is the 8th annual UNSW Arts and Social Sciences Postgraduate Student Conference co-organised by the A&SS Higher Degree Research Student Committee and UNSW Arts and Social Sciences.
The conference is an interdisciplinary event open to Higher Degree Research and Honours Arts and Social Sciences students from UNSW Sydney and other universities. This year’s conference will be held online on the 16th and 17th of September 2020.
Relevance, Responsiveness and Impact aims to highlight the critical role, flexibility and contribution of Arts and Social Sciences Research by showcasing the diverse and high-quality work of Arts and Social Sciences research students.
Relevance, Responsiveness and Impact provides a platform for students to present their work and emphasise the significance of their research to a diverse audience, engage with fellow Arts and Social sciences researchers, and potentially reflect on any changes that had or will have to be made due to COVID-19.
This year’s conference keynote by SHARP Professor Deborah Lupton will explore the value of Arts and Social Sciences research in uncertain times. Additionally, the conference includes a special session on career prospects for research students post COVID-19, and a methods workshop on critical inquiry.
