The Social Sciences Research Student Seminars provide PhD students with an opportunity to present their research to their colleagues, peers and other students from various disciplinary backgrounds.
Researchers find the seminars particularly useful for developing reflective practice as a social researcher, practicing presentation skills, research advancement and receiving constructive feedback.
The seminar begins with a presentation, followed by a discussion, where in a supportive and warm environment the presenter has the opportunity to answer questions and discuss personal academic worries, in addition to discussing issues related to fieldwork, methodology, research design and epistemology.
Each session ends with a wine reception, which is a great opportunity for everyone to socialise with members of the academic community in an informal setting.
