Call for Papers

For the Fifth Annual Research Practice Course Conference 2013 the organising committee would like to invite creative contributions on the subject of ‘Research and the Researcher’.

To correspond with increasingly interdisciplinary nature of PhD research the conference aims to consider the issues that affect all researchers regardless of their fields.

We would like to invite discussion on how individuals handle their unique relationship to the information they need to produce PhD research – whether in their own practice or studies or to the writings or comments of others. This might involve considering the role of the researcher as the generator of their own data or as the translator of other people’s.

We would like to encourage a dynamic and diverse range of presentations on the day and expect contributors to specify a format for presentation when submitting abstracts (e.g. Powerpoint/Prezi, performance, workshop, interaction etc.)

Please consider the following suggested topics:

The relationship between research and the researcher

How the researcher interprets their research

The identity of the researcher in their research

The researcher’s role as generator, interpreter or translator of data

The researcher as central to or outside the research

Key Dates:

Call for papers 22nd November 2012

Submission of abstracts (250 words and 5 keywords) 13th December 2012

Submission of papers (2000 words including abstract and references) 31st January 2013

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
