British Sociological Association Youth Study Group
Research Development Workshop for Research Students and Early Career Researchers
BSA Seminar Room, Imperial Wharf, London, Thursday 7th November 2013
The BSA Youth Study Group invites research students and early career researchers working on or with an interest any aspect of youth research to attend a research development workshop.
Building on similar previous events, the purpose of the day is to provide a platform for researchers to present their work in a supportive, constructive and intellectually stimulating environment. Researchers with work at any stage of the research process are welcome to present their ideas, findings or concerns of navigating the field.
Whether planning to present at the BSA annual conference (or any conference or seminar for that matter!), refining ideas and questions through the literature review, or preparing to seek out avenues to disseminate your work in journals in the field, the day will provide a safe space for participants to receive feedback and help them develop their research in a range of different ways.
The process will be supported by advice and guidance offered by established scholars in the fields of Sociology of Youth and Youth Studies.
The day will also provide a useful networking opportunity to meet other people researching in similar fields. With this in mind, delegates not wishing to present but who would like to take part in an observational capacity or share and discuss their ideas more informally are very much encouraged to attend.
Places are limited, but every effort will be made to include as many presenters as we can.
If you are interested in presenting your work at this event, please email a very brief outline of your research (maximum 150 words) and an indication of your stage of research and the primary issues you would like to develop (presentation skills/ content, refining questions, dissemination etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 5th, 2013. This will enable us to cluster or stream the presentations effectively.
Similarly, if you wish to attend without presenting or have any other questions about attending the event please feel free to email.
Fee: BSA Member £15 / Non Member £25
Hope to see many of you in November.
