An Early Career Researchers' Evening: The Blue Sock Salon
The first Blue Sock Salon was held on 28 October 2009, with over 50 early career researchers (Lecturers, Post-docs, postgraduate students) from UCL's faculties of Arts and Humanities and Social and Historical Sciences attending.
Watch this space for the next edition!
What is the Blue Sock Salon?
Think of it as an away-day for UCL Early Career Researchers
from across the Faculties of Arts and Humanities and Social and
Historical Sciences - except it's in the evening, mixes presentations
with mingling and some drinks, and takes place at an outside venue.
The first evening featured a baker’s dozen of pecha-kucha presentations by your colleagues, short films from the Slade, a VJ for sounds & images, a complimentary tipple, and space to mingle and swap ideas and experiences with other UCL staff and postgrads.
It took place:
On Wednesday 28 October 2009, 7pm-10pm
At The Horse Hospital, Colonnade, WC1N 1HX (behind Russell Square tube station)
And just in case: More information about the Horse Hospital and where to find it.
This event was free to staff and postgrads in the Faculties of Arts and Humanities and Social and Historical Sciences at UCL.
For more information or to register, please email Claire Thomson or Uta Staiger. Please feel free to circulate the flyer to colleagues.
Speakers from English, Scandinavian, Geography/the Urban Lab, Spanish, Information Studies, ESPS and other faculties presented their work, ranging from Viking myths over ghost photography, E.M. Foster and the pleasures of the piano, to the Scandinavian cooperative movement and urban planning in Chennai.
The Blue Sock Salon was generously supported by the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, the UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction, and the Vice Provost (Academic & International)’s Away Day fund.
