Thesis Forum: Call for papers

Have you published a paper? Given a talk at a conference? Taken part in a poster competition? Disseminated your work in a different way (blogs, public talks etc.)? We would like to hear from you at our next thesis forum. Contact Helen if you would be happy to contribute a short informal talk discussing your experiences. The forum will run on Thursday 27th February, 3-4.30pm in the Library Seminar Room.

The thesis forum is a friendly and welcoming meeting in the Library (and online) for research postgraduates to share tips on the practice of researching and writing a PhD thesis. Doctoral students from all stages and disciplines are very welcome.

If you are off-campus you can still join in- we broadcast our thesis forum as a webinar, and you simply need to login on the day. You will be able to hear the speakers and contribute to the discussion. We also record our meetings so you can watch at a time that suits you.
You can find our previous sessions here.
