Methods X 2019
Time: 09:30 16:30
Venue: Rendall Building, University of Liverpool, L69 3BX
The Third Annual Methods X Conference is being held in the University of Liverpool on Friday the 17th May 2019. It represents an opportunity for postgraduate researchers from across the region to come together to showcase and discuss the methods and methodologies at the centre of their research and exchange ideas, experiences and insights. It is also an opportunity to enjoy Light Night in Liverpool, the city’s annual free one-night arts festival, with a large number of arts and cultural events taking place across the city from the late afternoon onwards.
The morning programme will include a keynote by Dr Faiza Shaheen, Director of the Centre for Labour and Social Studies, and an economist by training, who undertook her PhD in the North West, discussing the importance of social research in the comtemporary world, as well as talks by three post-doctoral researchers recently awarded their PhDs in the North West – Dr Cat Mahoney, Dr Kirsty Morrin and Dr Eileen Turnbull – on innovation and impact in and through research and how method helps underpin it.
The afternoon programme will involve paper sessions involving contributions from current PGRs organised around the four main North West methods exchanges – the Archives, Collections and Documents of Life Methods Exchange, the Fieldwork Methods Exchange, the New Forms of Data Methods Exchange and the Quantitative Methods Exchange.
