Postgraduate and Newer Researchers Conference, 13/14 December 2010

Postgraduate and Newer Researchers’ 7th Annual Conference

Transforming Identities in Globalised Higher Education? Newer Researchers' Perspectives

We invite you to participate in the SRHE Postgraduate and Newer Researchers’ (PGNR) Conference 2010, which is returning to the Celtic Manor Hotel, close to Newport in South Wales, UK.

This SRHE Conference provides a unique opportunity for postgraduates and newer researchers in Higher Education (HE) to share and discuss their work with peers in the HE research community in a supportive and developmental environment. We bring together students and newer researchers in the early stages of a research career as well as those who may have more experience either in education, or in other fields, but are new to the issues of HE research.

It is an intellectually stimulating event, providing the opportunity to present your own research whilst learning more about the kinds of areas newer researchers in HE are exploring from a wide range of perspectives. The conference welcomes presentations reporting on ongoing research as well as pilot or completed studies, conceptual, theoretical or empirical papers. Submissions are peer-refereed, resulting in a range of high quality presentations and lively debate.

Whether presenting your own work, or attending for the first time to get a feel for things, opportunities are provided for delegates to chair presentations, attend workshops covering key skills for the newer researcher and hear leading speakers. With an international delegate group and a variety of networking activities during the conference, you will have access to a broad range of research contacts and like minds; an important element of the journey into researching and working in HE.

The increasing popularity of the PGNR Conference and the growing number of high-quality submissions means that we are extending to 1.5 days this year, also providing more opportunities for development-focused activities and the chance to link with the opening events of the SRHE Annual Research Conference.

This SRHE-led Conference is supported and subsidized by the Society offering these opportunities to postgraduates and newer researchers. We hope you will take advantage of the very favourable delegate rates for such a prestigious event at a leading conference venue and join us in December 2010.

This Conference will be chaired by Dr Arwen Raddon from the University of Leicester (UK) with co-chairs Mr Patrick Baughan from City University London (UK) and Dr. Saranne Weller from KCL. Dr Raddon is the Convenor of the SRHE Newer Researchers Network and a member of the SRHE Research and Development Committee. Saranne Weller and Patrick Baughan are Co-convenors of the Network.
