PG BAAS Conference


We hold these truths to be self-evident: Post-Truth & American Myths

A BAAS/CHASE Postgraduate Conference

Registration is now OPEN!

Day 1 (25 Nov 2017) (Fee: £10)

The programme for Day 1 will be published soon.

Day 2 (26 Nov 2017):  (Free) – a CHASE-sponsored workshop day for all postgraduate research students and early career researchers.

  • Session 1: Roundtable discussion: ‘Networks, Collaborations, Friendships: Beyond the dread of the buzzword’. Our speakers have kindly agreed to share their wisdom and honest stories about discovering like-minded individuals, creating networks, setting up collaborations, and developing friendships throughout their careers. We hope that the conversations resulted from this roundtable will enable us all to strip the word ‘networking’ of its corporate overtones and to approach the process of forming connections from a more candid and effortless angle.
  • Speakers: Dr Denise deCaires Narain (University of Sussex, CHASE DTP Director); Dr Doug Haynes (University of Sussex); Dr Matt Lodder (University of Essex); Dr Kaeten Mistry (University of East Anglia); Dr Rachel Williams (University of Hull).
  • Lunch
  • Session 2: A ‘speed dating’ type networking event to help participants meet researchers working in similar areas;
  • Tea/coffee break;
  • Session 3: Open discussion about the obstacles PGRs and ECRs face and possible solutions (such as existing support networks) with invited BAAS and CHASE ECRs who will share their own experiences.
  • Closing remarks.
We strongly encourage you to register for both – it will be worth it! Registration will be open until 10 Nov. Spread the word! For more information go to:
