CONFERENCE AT BIRKBECK COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON
Inner resources: the roles of reflexivity, self-awareness and emotional responses in the work of the academic researcher.
Film Screening: 6.00pm-8.00pm
The Keynes Library, Birkbeck, University of London, 43, Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD.
Can feeling useless open up possibilities?
Is there any value in procrastination?
Can intuition be trusted?
When does self-criticism become self-attack?
Is uncertainty an ally?
If these or similar questions have arisen for you over the course of your research you will find this conference helpful. Speakers from varied academic disciplines are coming together to talk and explore the issues arising from such questions in the hope of instigating a dialogue that will reveal the personal struggles and triumphs that those engaged in post graduate research, whatever their discipline, encounter in the course of their work. By the end of the day it is hoped that participants will have found a way to speak to each other that fosters a sense of community based on the value of subjectivity in academic research.
There is no charge for the day but registration is essential. It is open to PhD candidates and those engaged in postdoctoral research.
