Conference Programme

The Conference will begin with lunch on Tuesday 11 December 2007 and will end after lunch on Thursday 13 December 2007.

The conference programme will include a rich and diverse range of contributions:
  • Peer-reviewed paper presentations, invited symposia, roundtables; poster sessions, and
  • Invited panel question and answer discussions on topics such as getting published in higher education journals, building and sustaining research capacity and the future structuring of research funding.
  • A linked one-day conference for postgraduate students and newer researchers in higher education to be held at the University of Sussex on Monday 10 December.
Networking with colleagues is an integral part of the SRHE conference and social events are a good opportunity for participants to meet and converse in a relaxed atmosphere. This year, there will be two events.
  • Complimentary Welcome Reception on Tuesday, 11 December at the University of Brighton Art Gallery. This is open to all participants at the Conference and will include drinks, snacks and a hot fork buffet.
  • Conference dinner will be held on Wednesday the 12 December at the Thistle Hotel. There will be a pre-dinner drinks reception sponsored by Routledge/Taylor and Francis and the cost for the dinner of £33.00 includes a 3 course menu and wine.
