EMBEDDED RESEARCH CONFERENCE 20th June 2012, University of Manchester
A postgraduate conference around the theme of ‘Embedded Research’: A call for abstracts.
This inter-disciplinary conference will focus on presentations by postgraduates whose work in the field is characterised by an explicit partnership agreement with an external organisation.
The purposes of such partnerships with postgraduates and their academic institutions are to identify and implement collaborative research agendas.
As yet, the methodological, ethical and practical implications of embedded research have not been appropriately identified and critiqued. This lack of scrutiny is problematic as embedded research is providing more and more doctoral students with a route into academia or research.
This event will provide a space in which postgraduates from a range of disciplines can come together to critically engage, develop and inform the practice of embedded research.
Participants are invited to submit abstracts of up to 200 words, covering any aspect of this process, such as methodology, ethics and impact.
The deadline for abstracts is Friday 27th April 2012.
Please note that this event is free for all participants!
Keynotes: Professor Michael Apple, University of Wisconsin-Madison, U.S., Dr Megan O’Neill, University of Salford
