2022 EMDoc PGR Conference: Call for abstracts from Postgraduate Researchers

The call for abstracts is open for the 2022 EMDoc PGR conference. If you are studying for a doctorate at UON you are eligible to apply. EMDoc consists of nine universities who are keen to work collaboratively to share best practice, resources and insights into doctoral research across all disciplines. The EMDoc Conference is a great opportunity for PGRs to discuss and promote their research as well as network with other researchers from across the East Midlands.

This year’s conference will be hosted online by the University of Lincoln, and will take place on the 21st September. UON PGRs are invited to submit abstracts for the conference (deadline 5th August), on the theme of “Interdisciplinarity and Collaboration”.

Interdisciplinarity and collaboration are key parts of research and are becoming increasingly important in academic life. Interdisciplinarity is all about making connections between ideas and concepts from different academic disciplines, and applying the knowledge from one discipline to another different discipline in order to gain new insights and understanding. These practices allow researchers to overcome over-specialization and to address research questions in exciting ways that create new knowledge and theoretical perspectives. Collaboration between two or more researchers, involving the discussion and exchange of ideas and practices, is often integral to the development of interdisciplinary research. It helps researchers to encounter new methodologies and knowledge and to work more creatively.

We invite you to submit abstracts that address either interdisciplinarity or collaboration in an aspect of your research. For more information on the conference and how to apply please see the EMDoc conference page. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 5th August 2022.

During the Conference, selected doctoral students will give ten-minute live-streamed presentations. The Conference aims to cover a broad range of perspectives on the theme across all disciplines. Submissions for alternative modes (e.g. performance, spoken word, etc.) of presentations are welcome.

During the EMDoc Conference, we will also hold a Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition, where the winners of each University will present their research in three minutes. To enter into UON’s 3-Minute Thesis please see this post. Our winner will go through to the EMDoc conference competition.

Please address any questions about this conference to the organisers, via the email address on the conference page.
