Annual Conference


15th Annual Doctoral Conference

Due to high concern over the COVID-19 virus, many NARTI events that are scheduled to take place this academic year will now take place in the next academic year. Therefore, have made the decision to postpone the NARTI Annual Conference until 2022. Further updates will be provided in due course.

All applicants who have submitted their abstracts will be invited to participate in the 2022 Conference and an update will be circuated shortly.

We appreciate that many of you may have completed your PhDs by June 2021, therefore the Conference will be open to both Doctoral and Early Career Researchers and this will generate a good mix of experience and knowledge. This means that you can still attend if you are no longer a PhD student at this stage.

We will also reschedule events which will be useful for your research so please check the NARTI website regularly for updates.We will keep in touch with you and if you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to ask.

‘Dream, Plan, Achieve: Researching to Make a Difference’

2022 (date to be confirmed) Universities of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores (sponsored by NARTI and the ESRC)

As we enter the new decade, scholars at the cusp of their careers are increasingly encouraged to make a difference with their research both in doing something novel and innovative in terms of theory, but also to make an impact with their research beyond the confines of scholarly journals.

This conference seeks to embrace this challenge and opportunity to make a difference both within and beyond academia.

Organised over two days within the vibrant city of Liverpool, this conference will focus on PhD student’s scholarly and career development by providing a supportive and engaging environment to develop research ideas, potential contributions and future career goals.

A range of high-profile and eminent academic speakers and editors of top-tier journals will share their career insights, provide feedback on individual submissions and presentations, and be available for networking throughout the conference. Further, PhD students will have the opportunity to network and build relationships with other PhD researchers from across the UK.

All sessions will be held in the University of Liverpool Management School and an evening meal is also included offering a further, informal, networking opportunity.
