Nordic Research Network 3rd Annual Conference 2013
The conference organisers invite participants to the Nordic Research Network 2013, hosted by UCL’s Department of Scandinavian Studies. This two-day interdisciplinary conference on 5-6 September 2013 will bring together UK-based postgraduate students and early-career researchers currently working on topics relating to the Nordic area.
We are now inviting proposals from UK-based postgraduate students and early-career researchers (with three years or less of postdoctoral experience) for brief presentations (≤ 20 mins) discussing their current research aims or findings. Participation is not limited to those working within departments of Scandinavian Studies, and proposals are welcome on Nordic research in all areas of the humanities and social sciences.
We highly encourage alternative and interactive presentation formats beyond the traditional paper presentation. Examples include presentations given inPecha Kucha format, video, group panel discussion, roundtable, etc. Presentations will be followed by discussion and feedback in a supportive atmosphere.
If you wish to present at this conference, please send a title, abstract(≤ 200 words) and a short biographical note including your institutional affiliation (≤ 50 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org 17 May 2013, 6pm. These will be reviewed by the conference committee, and you will be notified of the outcome shortly thereafter.
Do note also that there is an opportunity for conference papers to be published in book form.
