FASS Higher Degree Research Conference 2018
Join the conversation in the annual Higher Degree Research Conference promoted by the UTS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) on 15-16 November 2018.
INTERVENTION. INTERSECTION. IMPACT
- Where could your research lead?
- Does your research prompt action around urgent problems, or does it connect with 'slow burn' questions and issues?
- How can research meaningfully create impact?
This is a collaborative and welcoming environment where you can meet other scholars, some of whom may be working on similar problems in parallel disciplines, and is an important opportunity to showcase completed research projects, discuss work in progress, and to meet candidature requirements (e.g. PhD Stage 1, Stage 2).
